Do you have a bit of an inner drama kid? Has that artistic quality been passed down to your literal drama kids? Well, a 2018 Season Family Pass for Tim Bray Productions might be the perfect gift for you and your lovably dramatic family this year. With four productions over the course of this year, this pass allows two adults and two children to attend every single one. Tim Bray Productions is Auckland’s leading theatre when it comes to children (and children at heart, let’s be real), with their 2018 season kicking off with Pippi Longstocking. Treat your family to a year of the arts, it’s the gift that keeps on giving.
A pot of gold at the end of the rainbow? How dull. We prefer the version where there’s roller coasters and go-carts instead. With two adult and two child Rainbows End Superpasses, you’ll have family fun day beyond sussed! Grab the kids on a bright sunny day, and get amongst the thrills, shows, and colourful fun that Auckland’s favourite theme park has to offer. With a Superpass, your whole family is entitled to unlimited rides all day long to ensure that optimum levels of fun are achieved, and you leave with a car full of sleepy eyes and smiling faces.
Seeing Auckland from a car, boat, or bicycle is all fine and dandy, but you can only see so much from the ground (or water) level. Take inspiration from the birds and explore Auckland from the sky, with these two tickets for Auckland Seaplanes. These super cool seaplanes take off and land in the Auckland Harbour, and in between, will take you and one other person soaring through the air above the city and surrounding islands. So grab a friend or date that you’re excited to impress, and take to the skies to experience Auckland like you never have before.
If you haven’t been to the Museum of Transport and Technology in Western Springs, Auckland (or haven’t been since you were in school), then we suggest you make this year your year to try it! With two family passes, both you and your kids will have friends to explore the fun and interactive museum with. Be transported back in time, take the tram, and learn all about the path that transport and technology have taken to get to where they are today. With Western Springs park close by, it’s a lovely chance to pack a picnic lunch with all your favourites and make a fun summer’s day out of it.

Imagine walking down the street in a signed New Zealand Rugby League jersey. Now imagine that the jersey you’re wearing has also been worn by a Rugby League Player in the 2017 World Cup! It sounds too good to be true, but it is exactly what we have up for auction right here, right now. Donated by the New Zealand Rugby League team, this jersey is as close to the action as it gets, and is bound to make everything else in your wardrobe look far less legendary by comparison. Does it really matter, though? Owning this jersey would make wearing other clothes completely pointless.
