Take me to....
New Zealand’s largest city offers a lot more than just the shopaholics’ paradise and “spoilt for choice” range of restaurants, theatres, museums and attractions that are immediately obvious and, of course, are all there to be enjoyed.
Today known as "The City of Sails" it lays a sound claim to being the boating capital of New Zealand. There are a myriad of harbour cruise options available and one is never far from the beach.
The greater Auckland region was also the original birthplace of the New Zealand wine industry, with notable wines produced in the west, particularly around Henderson, to the north around Matakana and on Waiheke Island.
