Experience Auckland

Experience Auckland

Few places in the world offer such variety as Auckland. Set between two magnificent natural harbours, and surrounded by lush, green hills, Auckland's landscape boasts nearly 50 volcanic cones and the many islands in the Hauraki Gulf. As a visitor, there are plenty of ways for you to experience Auckland the way Aucklanders do, no matter what the season, Winter, Spring, Fall or Summer.

The region enjoys a warm, coastal climate with any extremes in temperature.

Auckland is a food lover's paradise - surrounded by fertile land and rich waters, it is home to world-class chefs, food producers and winemakers. Visit one of Auckland’s wine regions, a must for foodies and be sure to take a ferry across to Waiheke Island, a 35-minute ferry ride across the harbour, and home to around 30 boutique wineries and vineyards. Just 30-miutes west of the city is Kumeu, Auckland's oldest wine region, and one hour north is Matakana, offering stunning each coast beaches and home-grown delicacies.

Take to the waters and Kayak to Rangitoto Island or experience the thrill of sailing on a genuine America's Cup racing yacht. Take the ferry across to Devonport and enjoy a café lunch and a spot of shopping or explore the WWII tunnels and gun emplacements in North Head.

Visit the Sky Tower for spectacular city views or get up close and personal with sharks and penguins at Kelly Tarlton's Antarctic Encounter and Underwater World. Visit the Auckland Museum for a daily Maori cultural performance. Enjoy world-class shopping. Climb a volcano or just pick a spot in Wynyard Quarter and watch the boats sail by, wander the scenic boardwalks and check out the local sculptures.

Winter brings out the best of this varied natural playground. Take a day trip or two out of city and visit the Hobbiton Movie Set, discover a vineyard for lunch and perhaps finish your day with a relaxing soak in a hot springs, surrounded by ancient native rainforest.

Auckland is more than a stopover, it is a destination of unlimited experiences!
