Auckland holidays

Auckland, New Zealand’s largest city, is poised between two large harbours and dotted with extinct volcanic cones. The region is a fusion of four cities: Auckland, Manukau, North Shore and Waitakere, with cultural elements and influences that span from Polynesia and Asia to Europe. While Auckland acts as a gateway to New Zealand, it is also a destination in its own right. Visitors can explore the islands of the Hauraki Gulf by ferry or charter boat, visit the forest tracks of the Waitakere Ranges, follow wine trails and enjoy the relaxing lifestyle of urban life by the sea.
