Auckland is a major city located in the north of New Zealand's North Island, centred on two significant harbours. The landmark Sky Tower in the centre offers views over Viaduct Harbour, which is surrounded by restaurants and cafés and is full of superyachts. The formal Wintergardens are in Auckland District, the city's oldest park, which is built over an extinct volcano. Mission Bay Beach, near Downtown, includes a beachfront promenade.
There is plenty of art and culture waiting to be discovered with Auckland. Mori history and rituals can be explored at the Auckland War Memorial Museum, while numerous world class exhibitions are on display and can be viewed at the Auckland Art Gallery Toi o Tāmaki. Another unique experience is the Good Heavens Dark Sky Experience, where you can embark on a fantastic evening voyage and marvel at the clear black skies for stargazing. Great Barrier Island is the world's first International Dark Sky Sanctuary, joining just eleven other locations. It is surrounded by rich natural forest and is home to the Aotea Track, where visitors can hike and take in the natural beauty of the area as well as see the unusual fauna at Glenfern Sanctuary. Alternatively, why not relax on or walk along the shores of Medlands Beach, a picturesque white sand beach with views overlooking the bay.
Auckland is a wonderful location for a family holiday. There are plenty of activities on offer that kids and adults alike will love, such as discovering unique aquatic creatures on a whale & dolphin safari.
