For the past two years Highlife Entertainment has delivered one of the top New Years Eve event experiences in New Zealand.

The last HIGHLIFE NYE EXPERIENCE at Waiheke Island’s Stonyridge Vineyard, secured its standing as the second largest New Years Eve event in the country while also becoming the first major NYE event to sell out of tickets.

After months of planning and hard work, we are pleased to announce that a new location in the stunning East Coast district of MATAKANA has been confirmed to host the HIGHLIFE NYE EXPERIENCE.

The MATAKANA winery district is a cruisy one hour drive from Auckland City and is neighbour to some of the North Island’s most stunning beaches and popular holiday destinations including Mangawhai, Omaha, Pakiri, Leigh, Goat Island, Waipu Cove, Point Wells, Ruakaka, Sandspit, Snells Beach and Tawharanui to name a few. Most of these summertime hot spots are situated within 5-25 minutes drive from our new site!

Together these areas offer a vast selection of accommodation options ranging from holiday homes for rent, hotels and motels, various resorts, bed and breakfast options as well as fully serviced holiday campgrounds. Get your friends together, book your accommodation and make a vacation out of it!

Highlife Entertainment will be providing transport options to and from the event from a number of the locations listed above. At this stage its looking like there will be buses and other forms of transport running to and from Mangawhai, Leigh, Omaha, Matakana Village, Warkworth, Orewa and Auckland. We are also looking into options for the other areas listed above.

For those people wanting to drive from these locations to the event or up from Auckland for the night, there will be secure parking available for over 1000 vehicles.
