Auckland is known as New Zealand’s City of Sails, but there’s so much more to it than marinas and vessels. Diversity emanates in every corner, with urban treasures and natural wonders working in perfect cohesion. Join us as we go on a walking tour around the city’s picturesque, Instagram-ready attractions.

From dusk ’til dawn, Auckland’s skyline is always breathtaking.

The Central Business District is lined with majestically modern structures.

As well as an impressive showcase of heritage buildings.

The harbourside is a year-round attraction.

As is the Sky Tower – the city’s most recognisable landmark.

Dormant volcanoes are abundant in Auckland’s natural landscapes. Like the prominent Rangitoto…

Day end 🖤

Even if you stay in town, you’re going to be immersed in a world of greenery.

Those who choose to venture a bit further will be rewarded with the lush Waitakere Ranges out west…

The blossoming Botanic Gardens down south…

And a myriad of beautiful beaches in every region.

If you like your art, there are plenty of galleries on show.

For those who like a bit of history, Devonport’s North Head Historic Reserve is a definite must-visit.

Those guns!

Wine connoisseurs should try to make their way across to Waiheke Island during their travels.

Truth is, whatever you’re looking for, Auckland is bound to have it.
