The gather & hunt collective are a group of people just like you. We live in Auckland, and we're pretty happy about that because Auckland right now is a pretty exciting place to be.
That doesn't necessarily mean we always know how best to fill our city leisure time though, so we made this website in the hope that it would become a space that would tell us about good things to do and places to go. A map to the magic that's right here.
The most important thing you need to know about gather & hunt is that this website is a platform for personal response and recommendation. We don't try to be objective; we try to be personal and positive, we try to be self-reflective, we try to be real.
We're simply publishing neighbourhood wisdom in a useable, accessible format. Basically, gather & hunt has the ability to make everyone feel like a local.
gather & hunt operates on the belief that if you don't have anything good to say, it's best to say nothing at all. We don't do negativity. If the gather & hunt collective doesn't like something, you won't hear about it from us. That means profiles on this website can't be bought. If a place is in our directory, it's because one of us thinks it's good enough to be there. Full stop.
The gather & hunt Collective is not exclusive; you can be a part of it too. This is simply an online space that suggests great things for Aucklanders to do. So if you're an Aucklander who likes to do great things, and you want to tell other Aucklanders about those things, maybe you should think about contributing.
We want the collective to grow in the same way that we want gather & hunt to grow. We want it to be a cultural hub that records and celebrates the urban life and lifestyle of Aucklanders. Your actions are key to the realisation of this vision, so tell us what you like or don't like. Tell us what you enjoy reading. Tell us what annoys you. Write something yourself and send it to us. Get involved, so that together we can expand gather & hunt and know Auckland better.
