Auckland Attractions

With Auckland being one of the biggest cities in the world, land-wise, your choices of things to do run from urban to rural. Learn about the history of this young country through the museums or take in some Maori culture at a cultural performance. Fling yourself off of something on a bungy like the Harbour Bridge or the Sky Tower or get back to the land on a farmstay or at one of the black sand beaches. Of course there’s always sport and if you are lucky enough to see the All Blacks play rugby or the Black Caps play cricket you’ll have some exciting memories to take home with you. If you are looking for some high-quality hiking gear you’ll find yourself in merino wool and Gortex heaven in the many outdoor shops. Art? Galleries are dotted about the city but pay particular attention to the areas of Ponsonby, Parnell or Waiheke Island which is just a short ferry ride away. And while you are out there don’t forget to sample some of New Zealand’s finest wines. Have you been considering a tattoo and think this might be the time? You’re in luck! Head up to Karangahape Road, known locally as “K’ Road” where you can choose from Maori designs or anything else your little travelling heart desires. In the summertime grab a blanket and head out to one of the many free festivals such as Symphony in the Park, Pasifika, or the Grey Lynn festival. Each has its own character or cultural flavour. For a rest you can indulge in some good, strong coffee and cakes in the local café scene or enjoy some fish and chips on the beach. Be prepared to fend off the seagulls though!
