Auckland, situated on the North Island of New Zealand, is the most populous region. The city of Auckland is New Zealand’s largest city, covering 500 square kilometres. Half urban and half marine, it’s a cosmopolitan experience wrapped up in a fascinating water world that’s dotted with more than 50 islands. This blend of harbour, islands, Polynesian culture and modern city environment has created a lifestyle envied around the world.
Auckland’s wonderful situation means that in just half an hour you can be almost anywhere – sailing to an island, trekking through a rainforest, sampling wines at a vineyard or surfing the waves on a wide open beach.
For the brave hearted perhaps try a base-jump by wire from the Auckland Sky Tower, or for a more relaxing day catch the ferry across the harbour to Devonport, see precious Maori artefacts at Auckland Museum or sail on the sparkling Waitemata Harbour. There is so much to see and do in the Auckland district visitors are spoilt for choice.
For your stay in Auckland, you may want a hotel, apartment, bed and breakfast, hostel, camp site, campervan, farmstay, homestay, lodge, motel, holiday park or even a vineyard – simply select your chosen accommodation to view more details.
