Every year hundreds of thousands of international visitors arrive into Auckland – New Zealand’s largest city and busiest international gateway.

Its multicultural population of 1.5 million people generates a cosmospolitan vibe, while its temperate climate and stunning natural harbour create the perfect conditions for relaxation, water activities and the good life.
There’s adventure to be had on a bridge climbing tour of the Auckland Harbour Bridge and delicious food to enjoy at harbourside bars and cafes serving some of New Zealand’s finest cuisine. Wine enthusiasts will love the wineries on nearby Waiheke Island, while adrenaline junkies will revel in the thrill of a ‘SkyJump’ from New Zealand’s tallest building, the Sky Tower.
Auckland is also one of the best places in New Zealand to indulge in a spot of retail therapy.
