Auckland International Airport (AKL)

Formed by volcanoes and flanked by natural harbors, Auckland is New Zealand’s largest, most multicultural city, and a gateway to the island’s epic landscapes. Significant Polynesian, Asian and Maori cultures create an eclectic feel to everything from Pacific Rum cuisine to hip neighborhoods — still characterized by Edwardian and Victorian architecture. This multi-cultural hub and vibrant city offers world-class shopping, restaurants, bars and galleries — all encircled by the magnificent Hauraki Gulf, spectacular beaches, pristine rain forests and amazing wine regions.

Create Your Own Auckland Adventure

More than just a city, Auckland is a whole region full of excitement. Best of all, with so many experiences close by, it’s easy to hop from one adventure to the next. Go outdoors to discover a nature lover’s paradise. Water enthusiasts can go for a swim in a secluded cove, meet local marine mammals at Auckland Whale & Dolphin Safari, and dive or snorkel at Goat Island Marine Reserve.

Adventurers can explore Hauraki Gulf, home to a multitude of remarkable islands with many varied activities, such as hiking to the summit of Rangitoto — a black-lava volcanic island; beachcombing on Waiheke Island; and catching a glimpse of rare, endangered birds at the wildlife sanctuary of Tiritiri Matangi.  

Art and culture lovers can wander through the dazzling galleries of stunning Maori and Pacific art, modern sculpture and classic masterpieces. World travelers will celebrate the best things in life by participating in Auckland’s many festivals occurring throughout the year.

Auckland is a divine destination for foodies and wine connoisseurs. The city’s food and wine scene serves up something for every taste — from modern to international dishes. Hop on a ferry to the seaside village of Devonport for heavenly, handmade chocolates and truffles. Take a day trip to the west of the city to tease your taste buds with award-winning New Zealand vintage wines, which you can pair with scrumptious local fare.

Auckland offers some of the best shopping in New Zealand. Browse vibrant shopping districts like High Street and Chancery — home to a world-class collection of boutique and designer stores. If you enjoy bustling market shopping, head over to the Matakana Country Market for hand-made or home-grown arts, crafts and goods.
