Ranked in the world’s top ten lifestyle destinations, Auckland offers a fantastic range of leisure and nature-based attractions along with plenty of cultural, historical and man-made attractions. Ascend the southern-hemisphere’s tallest tower for unparalleled views from the main observation deck, climb up to the crow’s nest or, if you’re feeling especially brave, you can even jump off the Sky Tower.

Surrounded by 50 islands, explore the picturesque waters surrounding Auckland with a trip to Devonport or scenic Waiheke Island and relax among the forest, farmland, beaches, olive groves and vineyards. Spend the day sightseeing, sea kayaking, mountain biking or touring the vineyards.

Discover renowned galleries, museums and historical sites and learn about the traditions handed down through generations. Auckland Museum offers the world’s largest collection of Maori and South Pacific artefacts and you won’t want to miss the daily Maori concert. The National Maritime Museum also has a daily Polynesian performance while the collection at the Auckland Art Gallery offers more than just works of art.

No visit to New Zealand would be complete without exploring the rugged landscapes and unique flora and fauna. Head out to the west coast to discover black sand beaches, the famous gannet colony of Muriwai Beach and the impressive Waitakere ranges.
