Travel Guide
 

Auckland entices almost one and a half million overseas visitors each year. It is the main gateway to New Zealand and its largest city. The best way to get a view over Auckland city is from the Waitemata Harbour. Passenger ferries will take you to Devonport and the Hauraki Gulf islands of Motutapu, Motuihe, Waiheke and Rangitoto.

Auckland is named the City of Sails because of its association with round-the-world yacht races and the America’s Cup. You can stroll down the main commercial area, Queen Street, and enjoy leisurely shopping in arcades and boutiques. Auckland contains about eight hundred restaurants, covering the full spectrum of dishes from exotic Asian dishes to Pacific Rim style cuisine - delicious.

If you are looking for a good hotel you can book Auckland Hotels here. There is a wide selection of hotels to choose from.

From Lower Queen Street, it’s a short distance to finding yourself at the harbor front. At the Viaduct Harbour are numerous bars, cafes and restaurants to enjoy food and drink after a stroll around.

Auckland City makes a good base for exploring North Island scenic highlights and attractions such as Cape Reinga, The Bay of Islands, Coromandel, Waitomo Caves, Rotorua and Taupo.
