1. Awesome, Alluring AUCKLAND
You will never be down when you visit Down Under. New Zealand with its picturesque places is an undiscovered destination. So begin your journey with Auckland!
There are so many things to do here - from the mild to the wild. Experience fantastic food and wine, world-class shopping and exciting adventure activities.
From leaping off the tallest building in the Southern Hemisphere – the Sky Tower – to climbing the Harbour Bridge for a spectacular view of the city or just zooming around on a Harley, this place has many adrenaline pumping activities.
If you are a water baby, hit the coast. You can cruise the beautiful Hauraki Gulf, sail an ex-America’s Cup yacht, go diving or snorkeling in marine reserves or see the huge gannet colony at Muriwai jet around the Waitemata Harbour or go whale and dolphin spotting.
Like any other bustling city, Auckland has many fabulous boutiques. But it is at the local markets where all the action happens. Here you can find fresh local produce and gourmet products that will surely tickle your palate. These weekend or Sunday markets also are ideal places to shop for arts, crafts, jewellery and more.
If you are in a mood for some vino and want to learn more about wines, Auckland is encircled by four wine regions – Matakana, Kumeu, Clevedon Hills and Waiheke Island. Enjoy wine tasting, delicious food and gorgeous scenery.
