Embracing a wide range of landscapes with many breathtaking views, Auckland offers so many things to see and do. Mt. Eden provides one of the best vantage points in the city as well as the nearby One Tree Hill.

On the north shore there is the village of Devonport with two panoramic look-out points: Mt Victoria and North Head commanding panoramic views across the harbour as well as the beautiful Hauraki Gulf.

Popularly known as the ‘City of Sails’, Auckland boasts a huge harbour that is dotted with hundreds of yachts so what better way to appreciate the scenery than a sail on an America’s Cup boat. Or how about a ferry across to Devonport? You can take a ferry further afield to explore the many islands of the Hauraki Gulf such as Waiheke Island with its many wineries, or volcanic Rangitoto Island that dominates the seascape.  You  might like a thrilling jet boat ride taking in the cityscape from the Auckland Harbour, or a scenic flight over Auckland, its harbour & coastline by floatplane or helicopter.

For the more adventurous, you can jump off two of Auckland’s iconic landmarks, the Harbour Bridge and the Sky Tower.  Then visit some of Auckland’s top visitor attractions such as Kelly Tarlton’s Sea Life Aquarium, the Auckland Zoo or the Auckland Museum’.

The best way to see these and more of Auckland’s popular sightseeing locations is to use the Auckland Hop on, Hop off Explorer bus service that visits 18 of the city’s popular tourist destinations.

When it comes to shopping, you will be spoilt for choice with both local and international fashion brands available. In the evening, you can soak in the atmosphere of Auckland’s many bars and restaurants as well as its stunning waterfront area and enjoy some top class entertainment
