Sights nearby

Auckland, the country’s capital and largest city, is set between two magnificent harbours and is the shopping, dining and entertainment hub of New Zealand. Tourism amenities are first-class, with hotel accommodation such as the Best Western Motor Lodge and Airport Manor Inn close by the airport complex. Historic districts here boast heritage homes and churches, and the ancient Maori influence is shown in the city’s museum.

- Mount Eden

For a magnificent view of the isthmus on which Auckland sits and its two harbours, head to Mount Eden, the city’s highest volcanic cone. The perfectly symmetrical crater is known as Re Ipu Kai a Mataaho, the food bowl of the Gods, and should not be entered as it is a Maori sacred site. Wandering around its perimeter is fine, and gives the best views.

- Auckland Zoo

Fans of nature and her wonders will love this zoo as it’s modern, spacious and cares extremely well for its resident species. Apart from the big five African beasties, there’s a strong simian presence and a whole section devoted to the unique fauna and bird life of New Zealand. Kids love this part of the zoo, and it’s set just minutes from downtown.

- Waiwera Thermal Spring Resort

A scenic drive north of the city is the ultimate hot-spring experience at Waiwera Resort. The volcanic field on which the city sits is still active, and the resort takes full advantage by offering a selection of warm, soothing pools, a medi-spa with delicious massages and hydro-slides for the kids. Its 350,000 visitors a year say it’s one of the best Kiwi thermal spas.

Eating and drinking and shopping nearby

The choice of eateries in Auckland means you’ll never go hungry, whatever your taste in cuisines. The formal, chef-operated restaurants are world-class, spurred on by the wide range of locally-grown fresh ingredients and Pacific seafood, and there’s a stylish selection of less grand options including gastro-bars, wine bars, ethnic eateries and trendy cafes. Fish and chips is an all-time favourite found everywhere, and best eaten straight from the paper wrapping and preferably on the beach. Pubs and bars are everywhere, with many serving Kiwi wines and locally brewed boutique ales and beers. Local markets are great for jewellery, art and crafts, organic foods, fashions and home-made goodies as well as the country’s world-famous honey.

Public transport

Getting from Auckland International Airport is by road, via the Airbus Express, running to the downtown district from 07:00 to 06:00. The journey time is approximately 40 minutes, dependent on time of day and traffic conditions. Local buses run to a nearby train station for connections with the central districts, and a useful alternative is the shuttle bus service which delivers visitors to their hotels.
