Grab amazing discounts on Waiheke Island

For a limited time, 47 businesses on Waiheke Island are offering a bunch of fab deals!

It’s winter in New Zealand, and that means a lot of hospo and accommodation businesses slow down. And as if that wasn’t hard enough, there’s a recession kicking our butts too!

So what’s a destination to do about that? Why, get everyone together to offer deals and stick them in a booklet!

That’s what they’ve done on Waiheke Island, and from 1 June to 20 October 2024 (into spring), you can buy the Waiheke Island Winter Passport for NZ$60 and redeem as many as you like.
