There is so much to see and do in Auckland, so take a closer look at some of the city’s top landmarks and attractions:
Ideal as a beachside getaway within a short drive of central Auckland, Mission Bay is popular with locals and tourists alike. In summertime you can enjoy a relaxing swim, or lounge about on the beach in the sun.
No trip to the City of Sails is complete without soaking in the sights, sounds, and smells of the Auckland Harbour. Whether you wander the harbour front or get out on the water, you’ll find the atmosphere electrifying.
Auckland is famed worldwide for its stunning skyline, especially at night when the Sky Tower lights up the air. Admire from a distance, then explore the SkyCity entertainment complex for the ultimate Auckland experience.
Auckland is a great place to enjoy a selection of cuisines from all around the world. Enjoy a wide range of foods and beverages from the Auckland Central Food Courts all throughout the city at any time of the day.
The Auckland viaduct and world-class lifestyle and nightlife go together like yin and yang. If you’re in the mood to wine and dine in top restaurants and bars, then you need to give the Auckland viaduct a try.
The Auckland Domain is a tranquil, natural environment nestled in the heart of a bustling metropolis. With great food and refreshments on offer, you can explore the domain and then dine with a fantastic view.
Auckland is an expansive city so public transport can be a great way to get around, with buses, trains and ferries serving tourists and locals alike. This can be particularly handy in the busier city areas or during peak travel times when the roads can get congested.
However, nothing offers the freedom of hitting the road in your own car, so a great way to get around Auckland and beyond if you are just visiting is by hire car. There are plenty of options available and at New Zealand Rent a Car we have three handy hire car depots servicing the Airport, city and North Shore.
