Auckland's blend of urban cool and scenic natural beauty makes it a must-see for any visitor to New Zealand. It might be the largest city in New Zealand but Auckland's sprawling suburbs all have their own character and charm.

Situated on a narrow isthmus and overlooking two harbours, you're never far from a beach in Auckland - and with 48 volcanic cones scattered across the city, there are plenty of hills from which to enjoy the harbour views.

Top activities in Auckland include going up the Sky Tower, visiting the Auckland Zoo, Kelly Tarlton's Underwater World, the Auckland Museum and Auckland Art Gallery. And to truly experience the 'City of Sails', take a ferry trip to Waiheke Island, Devonport or Rangitoto.

The city’s oldest park, the Auckland Domain, is an inner-city breath of fresh air. Home to Wintergardens, Sensory Gardens, duck ponds, large open green spaces and the Auckland War Memorial Museum. There’s always something happening here with many annual festivals and shows held at the Auckland Domain.

Keen to hit the beach and enjoy a dip in the ocean? You’re spoiled for choice with thousands of beaches to choose from in the greater Auckland region.  From rough black-sand beaches to calmer secluded shorelines, many of Auckland’s beaches are within a 45minute drive from the city centre. You can spend the day swimming, walking and relaxing at the beach or for the more adventurous, try your hand at surfing, paragliding or blokarting.

Experience Auckland City’s vibrant nightlife where an abundance of restaurants, bars and pubs showcase New Zealand’s finest food and drinks. Whether you’re looking for somewhere to relax and unwind or a fun place to let your hair down and dance the night away, Auckland City has something for everyone.
