Sera in New Zealand: Auckland

Discovering Auckland

 

NAU MAI, HAERE MAI – WELCOME TO AUCKLAND

 
Auckland is the New Zealand’s largest city, a place where city style and spectacular landscapes go hand in hand.
 
 
Breathtaking scenery, beautiful beaches, outstanding food and wine, great shopping, exciting nightlife and plenty of action and adventure – you’ll find it all here.
Shop up a storm or explore native rainforest. Dine at waterfront restaurants or go to meet the dolphins in the Hauraki Gulf. Dive into the nightlife or bungy off the harbour Bridge. Canyon down waterfalls or climb volcanoes. Escape to as idyllic island or sip on cocktails up the tallest building in the Southern Hemisphere.
 
New Zealand Maori called this land Tamaki Makaurau, a maiden desired by a hundred lovers. It was a place fought over for its vast riches, including its forested hills, productive volcanic soils and harbours full of seafood.
 
 
Today, Auckland’s striking natural beauty and vibrant urban lifestyle combine to make it one of the most desirable places in the world to live or visit. In fact, Auckland is rated the third most liveable city in the world in the Mercer Quality of Living Survey.
 
 
 

TOP PICKS

 
Get out the Waitemata Harbour with sailing, jet boating, kayaking or a harbour cruise, or get adventurous with a harbour bridge climb and bungy jump.
 
For a panoramic view of Auckland, you must climb to the top of the Sky Tower, which will offer you a spectacular 360-degree views. Don’t miss to try the exhilarating SkyJump and SkyWalk!
 
 
Explore the vibrant Viaduct Harbour, where waterside restaurants and bars sit alongside sleek superyachts.
 
Find vintage buys and quirky cafés and bars on K’Road, or high-end fashion and dining in High Street, Chancery and the surrounding laneways.
 

 
Take on the stunning panoramic views from the top of Mount Eden – Maungawhau – one of the region’s 48 volcanic cones and the highest natural point in Auckland.
 
Play a round of world-class golf at Whangaparaoa Peninsula with breathtaking views over the Hauraki Gulf.
 
Go swimming, kayaking, boating or fishing at Orewa Beach, or horse riding along the white sands of Pakiri.
 
In the Northern Auckland, head to Goat Island Marine Reserve for some of Auckland best snorkelling and diving, or watch the sea life from the glass bottom boat.
 
Experience authentic Maori culture at Te Hana Te Ao Marama Maori Cultural Centre, with its incredible 17thcentury fortified village replica and powerful cultural performances.
 
Enjoy skiing or snowboarding any time of year at New Zealand’s only indoor snow resort.
 
In the Western Auckland, go canyoning down waterfalls and gorges deep in the rainforest.
 
In the Southern Auckland, explore the remains of early Maori settlements at the Otuataua Stonefields and follow the market trail to the top of Mangere Mountain.
 
You can also go surfing, fishing, horse rifding, blokarting or paragliding at the magnificent black-sand surf beach of Karioitahi.
 
In Hauraki Gulf & Islands, jump on a whale, enjoy a dolphin safari and head out to see these beautiful animals in their natural habitat.
 
The Matakana region will offers you idyllic, tranquil, white-sand beaches at Omaha, Tawharanui and Pakiri. While their beauty and accessibility make them popular summer holidays destinations, they never feel crowded.
