New Zealands biggest city, you're never far from breathtaking scenery, beautiful beaches, invigorating walks, idyllic holiday islands, outstanding food and wine, great shopping and exciting nightlife.
Auckland sprawls over a narrow Isthmus between the sparkling waters of the Waitemata and Manukau Harbours. Auckland is one of the only places outside the tropics where rainforest exists. Award-winning movies like 'the Piano' and popular TV shows 'Xena' and 'Hercules', were all filmed there, give the park an international profile. The harbour, islands and proximity to the open sea ensure that seafood is a local specialty. Exploring Auckland itself is endless but visitors are able to easily commute to the Coromandel Peninsula, and the snowy peaks and deep lakes of the Rotorua and Taupo regions or head North to more beaches.

Ranked fourth on Lonely Planet’s coolest cities in the world to visit for 2010, “Despite (or maybe because of) its impetuous weather, Wellington is Cool-with-a-capital-C, crammed with more bars, cafes, and restaurants per capita than New York, and a slew of gourmet producers including some 10 independent coffee roasteries”. Take a walk from the Te Papa Museum to the grand Parliament Buildings. Stroll along Lambton Quay where you can take a cable car to the Botanic Gardens. Here you can enjoy sweeping views of this compact yet diverse city.
