Auckland downtown view from Sky Tower

From the sparkling harbour to wild untamed islands, rolling vineyards and modern inner city charm, Auckland’s diversity is what makes it so truly special.

Not only rated the third most liveable city in the world, ‘The City of Sails’ serves up the perfect balance of indoor and outdoor fun, making it an ideal destination for travellers of all ages.

To get a taste of everything Auckland has to offer, check out our top 5 must-do activities.

City Scapes

If city viewing is on the itinerary, the Auckland Sky Tower is the place to do it with 360 degree views from 220 metres high. Dine in the revolving restaurant, enjoy a coffee in the café or for the daredevils, tackle the SkyJump, a 192 metre base-jump by wire from New Zealand’s tallest man-made structure.

Island Hopping

Situated just 8km off central Auckland’s coast is Rangitoto Island, a volcanic landscape reknowned for its hiking trails and natural beauty. With more than 10 short and long walks to conquer, there is nothing quite like the scenes from the summit, sweeping from the Hauraki Gulf to the Waitemata Harbour and Auckland city.
