Destination Spotlight: Auckland

The harbor-side city of Auckland is New Zealand's only true metropolis and the vibrant economic heart of the country. The largest city in New Zealand and the world's biggest Polynesian Centre, Auckland is a diverse mix of contemporary lifestyle, cultural heritage, sporting achievements, economic vibrancy and colourful multi-cultural uniqueness, set in pristine marine-based environment.

Auckland is one of the few cities in the world to have harbours on two separate bodies of water. The central part of the urban area of Auckland covers a narrow isthmus between the Manukau Harbour on the Tasman Sea, and the Waitemata Harbour on the Pacific Ocean.

There’s always something happening in Auckland, from major sporting events, concerts and festivals to outdoor adventures, designer shopping and world-class food and wine. In the centre, the iconic Sky Tower has views of Viaduct Harbour, which is full of superyachts and lined with bars and cafes. Auckland Domain, the city’s oldest park, is based around an extinct volcano and home to the formal Wintergardens.
