Visit Auckland

A gem on New Zealand’s North Island, Auckland is regularly rated one of the world’s most liveable cities and a top destination for travellers

Here you’ll come face-to-face with the indigenous Maori culture (perhaps even the fearsome haka war dances that have been made famous by the All Blacks rugby team), along with the Asian culinary flavours and cultural influences of a rich immigration heritage spanning Japan, China, Korea, India and Thailand.

While rare for travellers to stay solely in Auckland’s city area, it is worthwhile to spend some time exploring the small-town charm of its central business district, patio restaurants and quaint residential areas with Victorian-era homes. 

Venture further afield for a world of choice: book a car and visit Hauraki Gulf and its many sub-tropical islands – the closest is Waiheke Island and it is home to world-class wineries (need we say more?). 

Further north is Goat Island Marine Reserve. This accessible underwater paradise is teeming with sea life, and the island itself is home to rainforests, thermal springs, sprawling parks and volcanic cones. Bring a snorkel and your walking shoes!

Best for:

Adrenaline Junkies; Backpackers/Budget Travellers; Beach Bums; Couples/Honeymooners; Eco Travellers; Families; LGBTQ-friendly; Nature Lovers; Road Trippers
