Tāmaki Makaurau Auckland is a multi-cultural urban oasis of food, music, arts and culture. It’s where sparkling waters and lush landscapes meet city sophistication.
Known as the 'city of sails', Auckland is New Zealand's largest city and one of its most striking. The North Island metropolis is blessed with a spectacular waterfront, a magnificent skyline, and more beaches than many of the country's coastal resorts.
It's also a family-friendly destination with attractions such as Kelly Tarlton's Sea Life Aquarium, where you can see the world's biggest Antarctic penguin colony. Or plan a day trip to Hobbiton, the stunning film set from the Lord of the Rings movies, just a few hours away.
Auckland has dozens of unique places for you to discover, from the pristine beaches of Waiheke Island to Auckland Domain, an extinct volcanic crater that is the city's oldest park. Visit the elegant suburbs of Ponsonby and Newmarket or learn more about the city's history at the Auckland Museum in Parnell or New Zealand Maritime Museum on the waterfront.
