Exploring Auckland

With more than 1.3 million people living within its limits, Auckland is New Zealand's most populous urban centre and its largest city. A narrow strip of land sandwiched between Manukau Harbour in the south and Waitema Harbour (and the larger Hauraki Gulf) in the north forms the main territory of the city. The same strip of land connects New Zealand's North Island to the Northland Peninsula. The city goes by the nickname of the City of Sails owing to the yachts and sailboats that dock here. It also goes by the name the City of Extinct Volcanoes as Auckland actually sits in a volcanic field, but all of the volcanoes within and around the city are now extinct.

European settlers from Great Britain arrived here in the early 1800s. Back then, a considerable group of ethnic Maori villages populated the area. As with many other colonies, the native population was driven out. The Maori moved back into the city little by little as Auckland moved into the modern world. Now, the Maori community forms a large part of the local population, comprising around 11 percent.

Sights nearby

Many of the city's best hotels are concentrated in Auckland Central Business District (CBD). This is the most popular area to stay when exploring the city’s art galleries, museums, and parks.

- Auckland Art Gallery

Holidaymakers interested in art and culture are in for a treat as the Auckland Art Gallery, located at the corner of Lorne and Wellesley streets in the CBD, has been recently refurbished to the tune of over $100 million. Both local and international art pieces are found within the premises of this world-class museum. There are even works by famous artists such as Gauguin, Matisse, and Picasso. Local arts and handicrafts of Maori and Pacific Island artists are also featured. Nearby, you can book a stay at the Best Western Auckland Hotel or the CityLife Auckland.

- Auckland War Memorial Museum

The Auckland War Memorial Museum is another tourist attraction that should be on the list of things to see of anyone visiting Auckland. Like the city's art gallery, the museum has world-class facilities and collections. Visitors might find it surprising that despite its name, the museum houses non-military exhibits, particularly, artefacts from the city's Maori ancestors. The museum has a 25-metre long canoe which was once used by the Maori in war. The museum holds Maori cultural performances daily around lunch time. The war memorial part of the museum is to honour the fallen soldiers of New Zealand who participated in both WWI and WWII.

- Auckland Domain

To relax after all the sightseeing, you can head to Auckland Domain. This park covers about 200 acres of green space and has landscaped areas filled with statues, ponds, flowering shrubs, and park benches. It is a great place to run around or have a nice picnic. Those who wish to stay close to this beautiful park can make a reservation at The Langham or the Quest Carlaw Park.

Eating and drinking and shopping nearby

Both international cuisine and New Zealand fare are served in Auckland's excellent eateries, cafés, and restaurants. Contemporary cuisine can be had at One Tree Grill Restaurant, Chinese food can be enjoyed at New Orient Restaurant, Japanese sushi is served at Fujisan, and Bellota is known for its Spanish tapas. Those visitors who want to splurge can head to the Viaduct Harbour for high-end dining.

Public transport

The local way of getting around is via self-drive, so consider renting a car during your holiday in Auckland. The city also has buses which cover many parts of the city, almost all of which converge at the CBD at some point. Auckland has three train lines covering the eastern, the western, and the southern parts of the city.
