About Auckland

Auckland on the North Island of New Zealand is the largest urban area in the country. Located perfectly between the Pacific Ocean and small mountain ranges, it is a truly beautiful city with two magnificent harbours to travel to the many islands nearby. Built over basaltic volcanic fields, the city has witnessed 50 volcanic eruptions to date! Considered such a valuable part of the global economic system, Auckland was officially named an alpha city by the Globalization and World Cities Research Network because of its plentiful contributions to art and commerce. Filled with numerous museums, beaches, art galleries, theaters, parks, and natural resources along with amazing oceanic weather, it is a favourite holiday destination for tourists all over the world. Affectionately named the 'City of Sails', this multi-lingual city earned its name due to the intense devotion of its sailing fans who have fallen in love with its many mesmerizing beaches stretched all across the coast.

Experiences
  • A treat for the kids in the city, is the Auckland zoo, the Kelly Tarlton’s Aquarium for sea life, the guided snorkeling tourist, the butterfly creek, and everyone's favourite, the Hobbit movie set, from the Lord of the Rings movie series.
  • Adventure lovers enjoy the mountain range expeditions and deep water diving in the Great Barrier Reef and other beaches.
  • Zipline and native forest expeditions are exhilarating experiences at Waiheke Island.
  • A single dedicated day to tour the mysteries of Waitomo Glowworm Caves definitely elevates excitement levels.
  • The hop-on-hop-off explorer bus gives a complete tour of the city at a complacent pace of 24 or 48 hours travelling time. These buses give tourists a revealing insight into the actual heart and soul of the city.
  • Food connoisseurs should not miss having signature dishes of Baduzzi, Paradise, Apero, L'oeuf, Blue Breeze Inn, Orleans, Satya, Dizengoff, and Saggio di Vino to add to their list of unusual, appetizing food.
