Flights to Auckland

Almost one-third of New Zealand’s four million people live in Auckland. Although Wellington is the capital, travellers arriving at this buzzing city will find it a strong contender for the economic hub of the country.

Auckland sits between two harbours; nestled between the Tasman Sea and the Pacific Ocean. And with 48 volcanoes in the Auckland volcanic field – all within about 20km of the city centre – the city has one of the most unique topographies of any in the world. As a result, there’s plenty to do outdoors and indoors, with lots of adventure sports on offer, and even more activities just a short drive from the city centre.

For those not seeking an all-action adrenaline-pumping time, there are plenty of five-star restaurants and luxury hotels dotted throughout the city. This is especially true around the harbour area, while low-key cafes and boutiques are hidden around many corners. Green space is everywhere, too, with parks, gardens, and paths.

Much of the action is concentrated near the water, from the restaurants, lounges and boutiques dotted around Waitemata Harbour to the golden sands and surfer-friendly cafes of Takapuna Beach. In short, Auckland is a paradise for travellers who love being outside.

Like most New Zealanders, the people who call Auckland home are friendly, welcoming, and ready to share whatever they have with you, especially if you’re a willing and interested traveller. And while the pace of life might be a little faster here than it is elsewhere on the North and South Islands, the residents keep smiling. They know they have it good; Auckland is repeatedly ranked as one of the best places to live on the planet. Whether you go for a couple of days, a week, or a month, Auckland is worth the trip.

What to do in Auckland

Visit Auckland Art Gallery

The gallery, which opened in 1887, boasts the best national and international art in the country and is located on the majestic grounds of Albert Park. You'll see everything from historic Māori creations to the latest from New Zealand's modern masters.

Bungee at the Auckland Harbour Bridge

Climbing up one of the largest bridges in New Zealand and experiencing the 360° views from the top is an effort well rewarded. But for a true once-in-a-lifetime experience, take the opportunity to hook yourself up to a bungee cord and dive down until you touch the ocean below with AJ Hackett Bungy.

Explore the Waitomo Caves

Hop on a bus and leave the city behind for the dark, wonderful, other-worldly atmosphere of the Waitomo Caves. Also known as the Glowworm Caves, they were formed more than 30 million years ago. The sight of thousands of glowworms clinging to the stalagmites and stalactites is spellbinding.

Pop-up Christchurch

The residents of Christchurch, imbued with an enterprising entrepreneurial spirit, have responded to earthquakes in 2010 and 2011, finding innovative ways to rebuild its infrastructure. So what happens when that landscape is essentially destroyed? How does a city recreate itself without constantly lamenting all that has been lost? It would perhaps be easy to give up, to lose hope. Yet, Christchurch, wounded and scarred, is a bright, innovative and energetic city that is breaking new and exciting ground Read more Pop-up Christchurch
