Volcanic Auckland

New Zealand splendours

Auckland is located in the North Island of New Zealand.

The Auckland Art Gallery has a spacious, creative and inviting interior. There are around 800 artworks on display but a highlight is the opportunity to view paintings by one of New Zealand's leading portrait painters, Gottfried Lindauer.

There are thousands of beaches throughout the greater Auckland region. Find a picnic spot or relax with a book under the shade of a sprawling pohutukawa tree, or go swimming, surfing, kayaking, snorkelling or diving.
Muriwai Beach is a beautiful, windswept beach on Auckland's wild west coast. Its waves will please the surfers and its dramatic stretch of black volcanic sand is perfect for a walk .

Woodhill Forest is a stunning natural playground for adventure lovers. Tackle some of Auckland's best mountain biking trails or simply enjoy the scenery on a trail walk. Auckland's regional parks are the perfect way to discover the diversity and splendour of the landscapes.

See Auckland's stunning views from the unique volcanic landscape. Take a ferry to Rangitoto Island and head out to Auckland's west coast to visit black sand beach.

Goat Island is a protected marine reserve and one of New Zealand's top snorkelling and dive spots. Swim amongst the colourful fish or take a trip out on a glass bottom boat to view the sea life.
Auckland Zoo is home to the largest collection of native and exotic animals in New Zealand. There is lots to see and do all year, including events and animal encounters.

The Wynyard Quarter is Auckland's most recently developed waterfront. there you can enjoy great dining, great markets and an outdoor cinema in the summer.

New Zealand invented bungee jumping, so if you have an urge to throw yourself into the air, you should check out the SkyJump at the Sky Tower on Federal Street.
