Situated on the North Island, Auckland is New Zealand’s largest and most populous city. A multi-cultural hub of food, music, arts and culture where nature and urban life go hand-in- hand. Bound by 29,000km of coastline, beaches are just minutes away from the city.
Auckland is home to more than 50 islands, perhaps the most well-known being Waiheke Island, which is famous for its vineyards, pristine beaches and impeccable wild, natural landscapes. Just a 40-minute ferry ride from the Downtown Auckland ferry terminal, it makes for a great day trip.
The iconic Sky Tower gives you the opportunity to view the city from 220 metres above street level. Spot key landmarks, volcanoes and other historical locations within the greater Auckland area. At the base of the Sky Tower, the SkyCity Auckland entertainment complex is home to two world-class hotels, Auckland’s premier dining precinct with over 20 bars and restaurants, a 700 seat theatre and a world-class Casino.

No matter your journey, Auckland is a boundless bundle of discoveries to be explored.
