Auckland

The Ultimate Guide

The ideal base to see New Zealand's north island.

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.
