Auckland city, in New Zealand’s North Island, could be considered the perfect triple threat: a stunning and diverse landscape, a rich melting pot of cultures, and a sophisticated, modern cityscape.
Bush walk, shop, skydive, ride ferries, watch cricket, catch a rugby match, go to the beach, sail, café hop, wine taste, bar hop, fine dine, explore art galleries - Auckland is a destination that has something, many things, for everybody.
The nature-minded can spend their days exploring the twin harbours, forty-seven islands, numerous parks and volcanic fields of the ‘Auckland urban area’ which encompasses Waiwera, Kumeu and Runciman.
A must-see is the Auckland War Memorial Museum for an insight into the history of New Zealand and its people; it houses one of the world’s largest collections of artefacts from Pacific and Maori culture.
