Auckland is New Zealand’s largest city, set between two sparkling harbours, one with pohutukawa lined sandy beaches, teeming with boating activity and the other with wildly rugged black sand beaches and pounding surf. The sea and all its attractions are why Auckland is known as the City of Sails.
The jewel in Auckland's crown is the Hauraki Gulf, home to sheltered sparkling-blue waters and dotted with beautiful emerald islands. Be sure to get down to the harbour and get out on the water while you are here.
Auckland's heart beats to a Polynesian rhythm, its people a melting pot of European, South Pacific and Asian cultures and a strong indigenous Maori heritage bringing an abundance of unique dining and shopping experiences.
