Auckland Holidays

Auckland Holidays,

New Zealand

When most people think of New Zealand, the first image that enters their mind is rolling, green hills, snow-capped peaks, golden beaches, majestic fjords, and incredible wildlife. What they don't realise, is that New Zealand is also home to some of the most vibrant, cosmopolitan, and exciting cities in the Southern Hemisphere. Founded on the North Island's coastline, Auckland is a city defined by the water. From its classy harbours to whale watching trips and water sports, Auckland has a strong affinity for the sea. With a blossoming arts scene, an impressive array of food trucks, markets and fine-dining restaurants, and excellent shopping opportunities, it's a city with a lot to offer visitors from all over the world.
