Auckland is the main gateway to New Zealand and its largest city with its vibrant waterfront life - not for nothing is it called the 'City of Sails' - and its busy Downtown district. Auckland may not be New Zealand's capital - that distinction going to Wellington - but it is the country's largest city and its major gateway for most travellers.
 
Places For Visit
Auckland Harbour Bridge
 
The Auckland Harbour Bridge is another icon that can show you an exciting time. Bridge climbing is one of the latest things to do - and it doesn't require a high level of fitness or daring. You'll be carefully guided along the spans before proceeding to the highest point for a knockout view of the city and harbour.
 
Sky Tower
 
Start your Auckland experience at the top of the Sky Tower. At 328 metres, it's the tallest building in the Southern Hemisphere. Apart from a stunning view, the Sky Tower now offers you Sky Jump - the world's highest tower-based jump. It's a leap beyond description...
 
Kelly Tarlton"s Underwater world and Antartic Encounter
For different view of Southern Hemisphere life, make a point of visiting Antarctica while you're in Auckland. At Kelly Tarlton's Antarctic Encounter and Underwater World you can meet King and Gentoo Penguins in a world of real snow and ice. You'll also walk through enormous perspex tubes while sharks, fish and stingrays of every description swim around you. Auckland Zoo's Sealion and Penguin Shores gives you a similar close encounter, except this time it's sealions whistling past your nose.
