Auckland's amazing geography and warm, humid climate has inspired a lifestyle that's regularly ranked in the world's top ten. In just half an hour you can be almost anywhere: sailing to an island, trekking through the rainforest, picnicking on a volcano or wandering a wild, black sand surf beach.
For an island escape, choose between Waiheke, Motuihe, Rangitoto, or journey a little further to Tiri Tiri Matangi, Kawau or Great Barrier.
To the west, north and south there are beaches and vineyards. The native forests of the Waitakere and Hunua ranges let you discover New Zealand's unique bird and tree species, particularly the giant kauri tree.
Auckland does the urban side of life just as well as it does adventure. America's Cup activity has added an infusion of exciting new restaurants and bars.
A reputation for great art and fashion makes Auckland a shopper's paradise. Local theatre and live music gigs are another opportunity to discover the creative side of New Zealand culture.
