Marked by an iconic skyline which includes the famous Sky Tower, Auckland is one of the most bustling cities in the north island of New Zealand.
This world class-city is often viewed as the gateway to some of the north island's most beautiful natural landscapes. On its west coast is surfing paradise Piha Beach while top wine regions such as Matakana and Waiheke Island are a stone's throw away offering quality tipples and breathtaking vistas.
Then, let's not forget how close Hobbiton is - for those Tolkien fans out there.
With Auckland Airport servicing both luxury and budget carriers from Australia's major cities, hopping over the pond for even as short as a weekend to explore this beautiful nation is never out of the question.
Auckland's city centre sits between two motorways and the water, providing easy access to other destinations in New Zealand by road and ferries from the city's wharves. It's only about 2km long (from the motorway to the water), so it is manageable to get around on foot, however it is a hilly city.
To make getting around easier, there are multiple transport options for visitors.
Types of transport. City buses, trains and ferries operate under Auckland Transport (AT). If you're hoping to go out to the wineries at Waiheke Island or the reserve at Rangitoto Island, you can hop on a ferry at the ferry terminal in the city. If you're hoping to go further afield, there are InterCity buses available from the Sky City terminal and Naked Buses available from near the ferry wharves. These buses aren't part of the Auckland Transport system, but can help you with day trips to destinations that are just a couple hours away.
Paying for transport. You can use the AT HOP card to pre-pay for travel on buses, trains and ferries. Additionally, buses accept cash. You can purchase ferry tickets on the ferry or before boarding. Cash is not accepted on trains, but you can buy tickets from top-up machines before boarding.
Best apps for getting around. The AT Mobile app lets you create trips using transit, notifies you when the bus is one stop away and reminds you to get off when it is close to your stop.
From the airport: The easiest public transport option from Auckland Airport is the SkyBus. It's $17 one way and runs 24-hours a day, with multiple drop-off locations in the CBD.
Taxi. Taxis can be pre-booked over the phone, with an app or hailed from the side of the road. You can find taxis outside the arrivals area of the international terminal by door eight. Fares range from $75 to $90 to the city.
Uber. Uber is available throughout Auckland, including the airport. Airport to the city centre fares are $38-$51.

finder.com.au has access to track details from the product issuers listed on our sites. Although we provide information on the products offered by a wide range of issuers, we don't cover every available product or service.
Please note that the information published on our site should not be construed as personal advice and does not consider your personal needs and circumstances. While our site will provide you with factual information and general advice to help you make better decisions, it isn't a substitute for professional advice. You should consider whether the products or services featured on our site are appropriate for your needs. If you're unsure about anything, seek professional advice before you apply for any product or commit to any plan.
Products marked as 'Promoted' or 'Advertisement' are prominently displayed either as a result of a commercial advertising arrangement or to highlight a particular product, provider or feature. Finder may receive remuneration from the Provider if you click on the related link, purchase or enquire about the product. Finder's decision to show a 'promoted' product is neither a recommendation that the product is appropriate for you nor an indication that the product is the best in its category. We encourage you to use the tools and information we provide to compare your options.
Where our site links to particular products or displays 'Go to site' buttons, we may receive a commission, referral fee or payment when you click on those buttons or apply for a product. You can learn more about how we make money here.
When products are grouped in a table or list, the order in which they are initially sorted may be influenced by a range of factors including price, fees and discounts; commercial partnerships; product features; and brand popularity. We provide tools so you can sort and filter these lists to highlight features that matter to you.
We try to take an open and transparent approach and provide a broad-based comparison service. However, you should be aware that while we are an independently owned service, our comparison service does not include all providers or all products available in the market.
Some product issuers may provide products or offer services through multiple brands, associated companies or different labelling arrangements. This can make it difficult for consumers to compare alternatives or identify the companies behind the products. However, we aim to provide information to enable consumers to understand these issues.
Providing or obtaining an estimated insurance quote through us does not guarantee you can get the insurance. Acceptance by insurance companies is based on things like occupation, health and lifestyle. By providing you with the ability to apply for a credit card or loan, we are not guaranteeing that your application will be approved. Your application for credit products is subject to the Provider's terms and conditions as well as their application and lending criteria.
