As New Zealand's largest city and international gateway, there's something for everyone in Auckland – relaxing or invigorating.

Your clients can take in the sun at one of the many restaurants, cafés or bars, savour some of New Zealand's best wine at the vineyards, or take a short ferry ride to explore one of the surrounding islands in the Hauraki Gulf. And that's only a few suggestions. With a moderate climate and plenty to do and see, Auckland delivers an unforgettable experience.

Things to Do in Auckland

  • Visit Auckland War Memorial Museum​​: Discover more than 1000 taonga (treasures) at the Auckland War Memorial Museum – the largest collection in New Zealand (and the world). From small precious artefacts to an original full-size marae (meeting house) and waka (canoe), this is a fascinating glimpse into early Māori culture.

  • Visit SEA LIFE Kelly Tarlton's Aquarium: Catch these cuties at SEA LIFE Kelly Tarlton's Aquarium, as well as the world’s only display of Spiny Sea Dragons, the biggest species of stingray on the globe, and an underwater aquarium of colourful fish. Watch the sharks at feeding time – or book your own shark dive.

  • Discover Great Barrier Island: Not only is Great Barrier Island a place of incredible beauty, it’s also the first island in the world to be designated as an International Dark Sky Sanctuary – joining only ten other locations. The island is off the grid and with minimal outdoor lighting, it’s a dream destination for star-gazers to take in the stunning night skies.

  • Discover Waiheke Island: Just a 40-minute ferry ride from downtown Auckland and you're in Waiheke Island, Auckland's island of wine. This slice of paradise is a haven of beautiful island beaches and some 30 wineries. Join a wine tasting tour and linger over a vineyard lunch, with gorgeous views to match.

  • SkyWalk and SkyJump at the Auckland Sky Tower: Standing at an impressive 328m high, the iconic Sky Tower is New Zealand's tallest building.  SkyWalk around the outside on a narrow platform 192m above the ground and take in the breath-taking views of the region or ‘SkyJump’ with nothing but a wire between you and the ground below.
