The Area: Auckland
A multicultural melting pot surrounded by lava-formed islands, Auckland seamlessly combines nature, culture and urban energy to form a cosmopolitan city that is growing by the day. Considered one of the most liveable cities in the world, Auckland may not have the grand scale of other great moving and shaking metro meccas but it has a creative core of galleries, trendy cafés and quirky shops that keep minds active and excited.
Nature lovers, culture vultures and adrenalin junkies all get their fix with the many activities and attractions on Auckland CBD’s doorstep. The brave climb the Auckland Harbour Bridge and the even braver take a bungee jump of a lifetime over blue waters. Those who appreciate a great view from behind glass shoot up the Sky Tower for unparalleled vistas over the city, sea and beyond.
Travelers keen to get in touch with nature hop aboard a ferry to the stunning Waiheke Island, or beach-hop around the many sandy bays in the area. The art gallery and museum are both ideal locations for whiling away hours and admiring world-class pieces, while retail mavens get some therapy on commercial Queen Street or in trendy Parnell.
