Address: Auckland City, New Zealand Auckland City

Description

Cosmopolitan with a diverse mix, it is New Zealand’s main point of entry for inbound tourists.

Built on a potentially active volcanic field, Auckland has many volcanic landmarks. Mt Eden is the highest volcano on the isthmus offering spectacular views over the city, while Rangitoto Island provides a wonderful outlook of both the city and the harbour.

Auckland with its mild climate, safe swimming beaches on one coast, challenging surf on the other, spectacular scenery, world class cuisine and award-winning wineries can be fast-paced, full of adrenalin-pumping action or as sedate and laid back as you want it to be – you chose the pace!

The Hauraki Gulf encompassing the Waitemata Harbour has many islands worthy of a visit.

Rangitoto offers a unique volcanic experience, Tiritiri Matangi Island Sanctuary with its extensive forest replanting and endangered native birds or Waiheke Island for a taste of sophisticated wineries, cafes, arts and crafts.

With so much to see and do in this world-class city, Auckland is truly a destination within a destination.

Either an excellent starting point to your New Zealand adventure or an awe-inspiring grand finale.
