What to do in Auckland

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.

Explore Cornwall Park

The volcanic cone of One Tree Hill, with its ancient pre-European Māori fort that's still visible, is the highlight of this urban oasis. Walk the many trails, visit the Cornwall Park Cafe for a quick refreshment, or just hang out with the locals who come here to relax.

Hike Mount Eden

The volcano Mount Eden (don't worry, it's dormant) is the highest natural point in Auckland and offers panoramic views of the entire city. A crater at the top, the remnant from an eruption nearly 30,000 years ago, makes for an entertaining afternoon of exploration.

The Engine Room (International)

The central Auckland staple lies a few blocks down from the water, far enough away to minimise the hustle and bustle of the bay but not out of touch. The friendly warmth of The Engine Room makes you feel comfortable no matter how long you stay.

Le Garde Manger (French)

This elegant restaurant offers traditional French fare in the heart of Auckland proper. Le Garde Manger includes a classy upscale dining room that wouldn't be out of place in Paris, right next to the lush Myers Park that's perfect for a walk after dinner.

Kazuya Restaurant (Japanese)

This well-hidden gem just south of the Northwestern Motorway takes some finding but is the embodiment of New Zealand itself. The Japanese flair running through the menu mirrors the multicultural society that calls the country home. The series of awards it has won are well justified.

Cazador (Mediterranean)

This is about as unpretentious as dining gets. A chilled out Mediterranean theme prevails at Chef Dariush Lolaiy's bistro-style space that has been in the family for more than 20 years. If you call ahead about some game you've caught, they'll cook it for you.
