Auckland - Where New Zealand meets the rest of the world
As New Zealand's biggest city and featuring an International Airport, there's a good chance Auckland will be your first impression of the country.
Auckland is known for it's prime harbour location which provides plentiful beaches and some lovely seaside dining options. No trip would be complete without a ferry ride to one of the nearby islands
The hilly landscape gives away the vast number of inactive volcanoes, many of which make for great parks and lookout spots today. Take a walk up Mt Eden at sunset for a spectacular view of the city.
Auckland has an abundance of events and activities around every corner. See for yourself!
