Auckland

New Zealand

The edge of wilderness


A city on the edge of pristine wilderness sounds unreal, doesn’t it? Welcome to Auckland. Set on 53 dormant volcanic cones, Auckland is the counties biggest city and the gateway to the rest of beautiful New Zealand. Stay in Auckland and you’ll discover the city has some charms of it’s own. Don’t miss the brightly coloured sailing boats zipping around sparkling Waitemata Harbour, bush walks into the rainforest covered hills and day trips to the string of black sand beaches. Boasting more than just natural beauty, Auckland is a thriving metropolis with some of the country’s best eats, coffee, bars, and culture.
