What are the best places to visit in Auckland?

We've got all the sightseeing info you need for your next trip to Auckland. Grab your planner and get ready to start topping up your itinerary.

Mt. Eden and the University of Auckland are part of the thriving heart of this place. Loved by both travellers and locals, these remarkable attractions should be non-negotiable fixtures of your holiday itinerary.

You're going to be surrounded by amazing things to do and see, such as the Auckland Zoo and the Auckland War Memorial Museum. If you're wanting to squeeze the most out of your time here, also swing by Auckland Town Hall and Queen Street Shopping District.

We all dote on our feathered and furry friends, but how about acquainting yourself with those who are a touch more slimy and scaly? You can encounter a few of the most fascinating occupants of the aquatic world at Kelly Tarlton's Underwater World. There's an excellent range of things to do in this destination. Would you like to while the time away among the trees? Take a trip to Auckland Domain. Still got time to spare? Spend your Sunday morning at St. Patrick's Cathedral. When you're there, take a moment to sit and enjoy a bit of quiet reflection.

What are the most popular activities for a Auckland holiday?

No matter how plush your hotel room is, don't spend your getaway hiding in your room or snoozing beside the pool. There are boundless incredible experiences to be had!

Is there an airport in Auckland?
