Start your holiday in Auckland
Surrounded by two harbours, in a region rolling with volcanic hills, Auckland has an enviable natural setting. The city’s appeal is then further enhanced by its accessibility as New Zealand’s main international arrival point and the gateway to the untamed beauty of New Zealand’s Northland. While there is the option to enter the country via Auckland before boarding a flight straight to the South Island, it’s really worth giving this ‘City of Sails’ some of your time.
Stay a few days and you’ll get to know a multi-cultural city that’s home to a vibrant and creative scene. Where food is among some of the freshest in the world, quality of life often regularly tops the polls and the great outdoors – from the harbour to wine regions, rainforests and beaches – is literally just on its doorstep. Stay a few days and you’ll no doubt fall in love with Auckland. Stay any longer and you might not want to leave!
