A major city in the north of New Zealand´s North Island, Auckland encompasses two big harbors.
The city center´s highlight is the iconic Sky Tower with breathtaking views of Viaduct Harbor and its display full of super-yachts alongside of numerous restaurants, bars, and cafes. Also near downtown is the seaside promenade of Mission Bay Beach, and the city´s oldest park (Auckland Domain) near an extinct volcano and home to the Wintergardens.
Explore North Island´s Maori and Polynesian history in the Auckland Museum, and indulge in local foods and crafts at the Otara’s Polynesian market in South Auckland. Along Nuffield Street and The Ponsonby area find hip boutiques, and a wide variety of stores for even more shopping options.
Other must-see attractions include the Toi o Tāmaki art gallery, and the Kelly Tarlton’s Sea Life Aquarium, where you can share your visit with a penguin colony and maybe dare to swim with sharks.
For pleasant temperatures and thin tourist crowds, visit Auckland at the end of fall (May) and the beginning of spring (September).
