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.
Explore hidden gems such as Muriwai Gannet Colony and Bethells Beach. Take a break from the city and head to Takapuna Beach and Orewa Beach. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Auckland: Matakana War Memorial (in Matakana), Warkworth (Tawharanui Regional Park, Goat Island Marine Reserve, &more) and Brick Bay Sculpture Trail (in Snells Beach). There's still lots to do: cast your line with a fishing tour, tour the pleasant surroundings at Mangawhai Walkway, take an in-depth tour of Bohemian Museum, and look for gifts at Pauanesia.

For traveler tips, more things to do, maps, and tourist information, read our Auckland travel planning website.

Auckland is very close to Devonport. In December, daily temperatures in Auckland can reach 20°C, while at night they dip to 20°C. Cap off your sightseeing on the 2nd (Thu) early enough to travel back home.
