Things To Do In Auckland

Explore Auckland

Tāmaki Makaurau Auckland is an urban oasis.

World-class shopping and phenomenal dining are never too far from harbours, islands, native bush and black-sand beaches. Go sky diving or whale watching, hike an ancient volcanic cone, sip local award-winning wine, or star gaze from the International Dark Sky Sanctuary of Great Barrier Island.

Lonely Planet describes Auckland as “geographically blessed,” ringed by beautiful beaches, sitting on a gorgeous harbour, surrounded by nature, rich with volcanoes to climb and take in views from, and also — as New Zealand’s largest city — large enough in population to have a diverse and exciting dining and cultural scene. It’s a thriving cosmopolitan city where you can be on the water, in the bush, or up a mountain within minutes of the CBD, and sipping a cocktail at a rooftop bar not long after — in other words, the best of all worlds.

The Auckland of the past few years has finally taken advantage of its prime position on the Waitemata Harbour, with the development of world-class waterfront areas and a more pedestrian-friendly CBD making it one of the most vibrant cities in the South Pacific. Auckland is packed with amazing restaurants, bars, cafes, parks, and world-class attractions, most of which are easily accessed from the CBD hotels. The result is a city that can cater to couples, friends, families, or conferences, and events with style. It’s a city suited to the cosmopolitan types, yet also perfect for the adventure-seeking or outdoorsy types — a city that has just as much to offer the visitor from other parts of NZ as the overseas tourist.
