Flights to Auckland

Auckland is a spectacular city, with a lively modern feel. Bordered on three sides by the sea, Auckland has no shortage of waterfront cafes, bars and on-the-water activities to keep you entertained, day and night.

Popularly known as the "city of sails", Auckland is home to boats of all sizes and descriptions, from family friendly motorboats, to the mega yachts and launches of the uber rich.

On land, the city hosts a fascinating blend of colonial and modern architecture - most strikingly, the Sky Tower which dominates the cityscape. Other notable buildings include the Hilton hotel which closely resembles a cruise ship perched on a wharf in the cities vibrant Viaduct Harbour district.

One of the primary restaurant and nightlife districts in the city, Auckland's Viaduct Harbour boasts chic waterfront bistros rubbing shoulders with a range of bars and watering holes - from Irish pubs to underground sub-zero bars. The Britomart precinct, walking distance away, is definitely worth a look - with a range of new bars and live music venues popping up each week.

If you've got a few days up your sleeve visit Auckland Museum, and absorb the unique cultures of the south pacific from the Maori which settled New Zealand from Polynesia to the early European settlers. Missionaries, expeditions and explorations, tribal warfare, whaling, gum digging, logging, gold mining, sheep farming and much more - New Zealand has a very busy history!

As if that wasn't enough, the city is built on a volcanic zone - and the evidence is apparent. Studded with dormant (hopefully!) volcanoes that often lend their names to the suburbs that surround them. Mt Eden, one of the more central of these has a sizeable crater and makes a great photo opportunity. Mt Eden is also home to Eden Park - New Zealand's main rugby venue, and host to most international games.

Auckland is a great place to start and finish your holiday in New Zealand, offering all the amenities a modern city can afford, with a trendy and uniquely pacific flavour.
