Auckland Travel Planning
Facts about Auckland region Location Information
Imagine an urban environment where everyone lives within half an hour of beautiful beaches, hiking trails and a dozen enchanted holiday islands. Add a sunny climate, a background rhythm of Polynesian culture and a passion for outstanding food, wine and shopping and you have a vibrant and sophisticated city. Auckland is New Zealand's largest city and has the main international airport in New Zealand. Two domestic terminals allow frequent and accessible flights throughout the country.
City at the edge of the ocean
Auckland is New Zealand's largest city. Half urban and half marine, it's a cosmopolitan experience wrapped up in a fascinating aquatic world dotted with more than 50 islands.
Thirty minutes to anywhere
In just half an hour you can be almost anywhere - sailing to an island, trekking through a rainforest, picnicking on a volcano, sampling wines at a vineyard or wandering a wild, black sand surf beach.
A diverse range of cultures adds flavour and interest to the city's style of life. As a result, Auckland has perfected a style of cuisine called ‘Pacific Rim', which blends Asian and Pacific flavours.
