About Auckland

Auckland is a large, sprawling city offering a mixture of inner-city entertainment, relaxed suburban living and stunning coastal scenery. The city centre hugs the harbour, where cruise ships, yachts and ferries cruise the Hauraki Gulf.

Built on a volcanic field, Auckland has no shortage of inner-city scenic lookouts. The iconic Sky Tower is the tallest structure in the Southern Hemisphere measuring 328 metres high. Breathtaking 360-degree panoramic views from the viewing docks are an impressive sight. While at the Sky Tower, you could also do the SkyWalk, SkyJump or dine in the rotating Orbit Restaurant. 

Surrounded by water, you're spoiled for choice if you're a keen swimmer, surfer, sun-bather or sandcastle extraordinaire. From rugged black sand west coast beaches to secluded white sand coves, Auckland has hundreds of beaches to choose from. 

Well known for expansive shopping malls, Auckland has some of the country's best retail shops and upmarket boutique stores. Newmarket, Ponsonby Road and Parnell are just some of the cities' fabulous upmarket shopping locations. 

Other things to do in Auckland include tramping in the Waitakere Ranges, ferrying over to Waiheke Island and sampling fine wine, or spending an adventure-packed day at Rainbow's End or Vector Wero's Whitewater Park
