Destination guide

Get your culture kicks in this Down Under wonder

Come live it up in New Zealand's largest and most dynamic city! Set around a sparkling harbor peppered with bright white sails, this friendly destination is home to about a third of the Kiwi population and has a laid-back, outdoorsy lifestyle. It's within easy reach of vineyards, powdery white beaches, and island retreats. There are also plenty of cosmopolitan pursuits, from fine museums and galleries to an excellent and diverse choice of gourmet restaurants. It's no surprise that the city is regularly voted as one of the most liveable in the world.

Things to do

Want your fix of fascinating Maori heritage? You've come to the right place

The cavernous, neoclassical Auckland War Memorial Museum has everything from Maori treasures to fossils to hands-on galleries for kids. If you time your visit right, you'll get to see a high-energy rendition of the Maori haka (war dance). Set in a striking modern building, the Auckland Art Gallery is home to over 15,000 works of art ranging from the ancient to the contemporary, including outstanding works by Maori and Pacific Island artists. For spectacular views over the city's skyline, a giddying ride up to the top of the Sky Tower is essential.


Craving some action? Live it up in the great NZ outdoors

Few big cities are as outdoorsy as this place, and Auckland vacation rentals will never be far from the action. Getting out on the water is a must when you're in town, and sailing, kayaking, paddle boarding, windsurfing, and swimming can all be done in and around the harbor and along the gorgeous coastline. Or, pay a visit to Waiheke Island to tour the local vineyards, take a hike in nearby bushland, or strap on some rollerblades and join the locals in one of the city's many parks or boulevards.


Need room to breathe? Stick to the shoulder seasons

The best time to visit Auckland is in the fall (April to May) and the beginning of spring (September to October). These shoulder months offer mild weather and perfect walking conditions, as well as fewer crowds. During peak season (November through March), you'll be faced with large traveler numbers and higher prices on Auckland vacation rentals, but you'll also find warmer temperatures and less rain, so the weather is perfect for the beach. Between May and September, both temperatures and tourism drop off as the locals head inside for the winter.
