Why Auckland? Auckland is New Zealand's largest city. It is a modern cosmopolitan city ...
with a beautiful, clear harbour where people go boating or swimming throughout the year. The city is easy to navigate by foot, but you can also get around the city by bus, train or ferry. To really see all that Auckland has to offer, then why not visit the Sky Tower and enjoy a panoramic view of this fabulous city. It is a great way to learn more about the traditional Māori culture in the Auckland Museum or a native forest hike. There are some islands worth visiting off the coast of Auckland, which you can reach by ferry.
