Auckland

Auckland is the gateway to New Zealand for most visitors.
Built on a narrow isthmus between two island-studded harbours, Auckland is reknowned for its beauty, with 100km of coastline crammed with stunning beaches, 23 regional parks, two marine reserves and a landscape dotted with 48 volcanic cones. With all the water surrounding the region, it’s no wonder Aucklanders boast the largest boat ownership per capita in the world – that’s why it’s called “The City of Sails”. Check out the view from the Sky Tower, climb the Harbour Bridge, scale a volcano or visit the Aquarium. There is so much family fun to be had in Auckland that you will keep coming back for more!

It’s not hard to see why Auckland is regarded as one of the most liveable cities in the world.

Auckland is centred around its waterfront. Viaduct Harbour, Built for the hosting of the America’s Cup, is an area that is now home to museums, bars, restaurants, walking and cycling paths, plenty of maritime history (including a giant yacht suspended above the entranceway) as well as a kid’s playground and accommodation. There is so many things to do and see!

In this precinct, The Voyager NZ Maritime Museum celebrates New Zealanders’ love for the sea, from the migration of early Polynesian voyagers, to modern day yachting.

Standing at 328 metres tall, on the corner of Victoria and Federal Streets, the Sky Tower offers crystal clear views of Auckland for 80 kilometres in every direction. The tower is the tallest man-made structure in New Zealand and among the tallest in the Southern Hemisphere. Enjoy dinner with a view in one of the tower’s sleek restaurants including the Sugar Club and Orbit Dining. They always have a range of school holiday activities running, so be sure to check it out for something different for the kids.

The North Shore city region covers 120km of coastline and includes more than 30 sandy swimming beaches. Part of the North Shore’s appeal is that it is just a short drive from the city lights and downtown lifestyle of central Auckland, yet it has a real community feel and beachside character and provides a range of things to do for families with kids.

Visit the historic seaside village of Devonport. Discover small sandy beaches, a compact village centre bustling with cafes, shops and galleries, and two volcanic cones offering spectacular views. All this just a few minutes across the water from downtown Auckland. Explore Takapuna. This vibrant seaside suburb is home to stylish shops, swanky cafes and a bustling Sunday Market. Visit the stunning white sand beach and enjoy the unspoiled views of Rangitoto and other Hauraki Gulf Islands.

Most businesses within Auckland have awesome school holiday activities to help keep the kids entertained. There is always something happening in Auckland!
