The largest and most populous city in New Zealand, Auckland combines a rich history and thriving contemporary culture in an abundance of museums, art galleries, and performance venues.
Step out of the city life by going to Piha Beach and Orewa Beach. You'll explore and learn at Auckland Museum and Black Door Gallery. Explore Auckland's surroundings by going to Piha (Arataki Visitor Centre & Kitekite Falls) and Warkworth (Tawharanui Regional Park & Cement Works). There's lots more to do: surround yourself with nature on a nature and wildlife tour, don't miss a visit to SkyTower, admire all the interesting features of One Tree Hill (Maungakiekie), and see the interesting displays at New Zealand Maritime Museum.
