Auckland & around

Auckland, the City of Sails, is New Zealand's largest city and has a great waterfront location on the Hauraki Gulf.Embedded_map_Auckland.jpg

It is a cosmopolitan city with a wide range of dining and wining options and it is also home to Sky Tower, the tallest tower in the Southern Hemisphere. A trip to the viewing platform provides superb views of the city and Hauraki Gulf, and you may wish to take the quick way down by attaching yourselves to a Sky Jump cable and leaping off!

Auckland's west coast is a remarkable contrast to the city iself and you can spend time exploring the windswept beaches and the subtropical bush clad hills of the Waitakere Ranges.

From Auckland you could join a cruise to Tiritiri Matangi Island out in the Hauraki Gulf.  Here you can see some of New Zealand's most endangered birds, including the kokako and saddleback, in this open sanctuary.  A guided walk will provide expert commentary on the animal life and the historical and archaeological features of the island. 

Waiheke Island is a short ferry journey from Auckland and, with its beautiful beaches and scenic blend of forest and farmland, is a peaceful sub-tropical escape from the hustle and bustle of the city. The island is home to a fantastic range of activities including sea kayaking, mountain biking and vineyard tours.
