Auckland – New Zealand’s Metropolis
Auckland — the most significant city in the South Pacific — a lively fusion of international style, local creativity, and Polynesian charm.
Any trip to the south Pacific is incomplete without a trip to Auckland, the City of Sails
– a beautiful historic city of marinas, near-by volcano cones and rainforests, and memorable islands. Auckland is a magnet for visitors to this pristine, friendly, English-speaking country.
Auckland attractions include the Sky Tower — do you dare to leap off the 630 foot Sky Jump ? — museums, the casino, historic homes, pubs, parks, a war memorial. Time your visit to coincide with one of the frequent festivals. There are literally dozens of attractions to choose from.
Auckland’s enjoyment-driven lifestyle has been voted amongst the best in the world. In just half an hour you could be almost anywhere – sailing to an island, barbecuing by the beach, teeing off at Gulf Harbour, sampling wines at a vineyard, or sipping a latte’ at the cafe caravan on the wild west coast beach.
