Where to stay in Auckland

Exploring Auckland

Home to almost a third of New Zealand’s population, Auckland is a cosmopolitan city set on an isthmus in the northern half of the North Island. Perched between Waitemata and Manukau harbours, the city has absorbed well-preserved historic settlements as well as creating its high-rise central cityscape. It’s the country’s hub for shopping, plus dining at all levels and has a wide selection of pubs and bars as well as indoor and outdoor activities.

The city sprawls over a large urban area comprising many suburban centres, and is surrounding by more than its fair share of natural beauty, beaches and remote getaway destinations. Motorways make driving easy and traditional tram services have been re-introduced to cater for tourists. Ferry services join the waterside districts, and Auckland’s unique character is due to its site on an ancient, still active, volcanic field.
