Auckland Activities

Discover Auckland

Ringed by beautiful beaches and sitting on a picturesque harbour, it’s easy to see why Lonely Planet described Auckland as “geographically blessed.” Nearby you’ll find volcanoes to climb and rugged nature to explore, while the city itself — New Zealand’s largest — offers a colorful culinary scene that reflects the country’s diverse influences. This is the kind of city where you can leave the CBD and be out on the water, in the bush, or climbing a mountain within minutes, and still make it back to sip a cocktail on the roof in time for sunset.

Auckland is also a city that’s changing. The development of the spectacular waterfront and the shift towards a pedestrian-friendly CBD have made it one of the most vibrant cities in the South Pacific. Naturally, this progressive, metropolitan setting is home to world-class dining, bars, cafes, green spaces, and entertainment. It’s a vibrant destination that’s popular among locals and international guests, thrill-seekers and urban explorers. For romantic escapes, group getaways, family vacations, and all manner of events, Auckland has you covered.


If shopping is one of your favourite pastimes, Auckland has a lot to offer.
