The largest and most populous city in New Zealand, Auckland combines a rich history and thriving contemporary culture in an abundance of museums, art galleries, and performance venues. Breathe deeply in the wealth of green spaces dotted around the cosmopolitan city, and head to the harbor to explore the main hub of activity and industry. Residents have a particular fondness for sailing, earning the city the nickname "City of Sails"; naturally, water sports and boat trips out into the Hauraki Gulf rank among the main Auckland attractions. With a major surge of modernization in recent years, Auckland boats some of the country's most spectacular architecture and an infrastructure befitting one of the world's most thriving urban areas. Add Auckland and other destinations in New Zealand to your travel plans using our New Zealand sightseeing planner.
