Auckland: City of Sails

Auckland New Zealand, The City of Sails, New Zealand's largest and most cosmopolitan city.

Located on a beautiful harbour where sailing seems to be the predominant leisure time activity (hence the title "City of Sails") Auckland, population 1.3million, is home to a third of NZ's population and is regularly voted one of the best lifestyle cities in the world.

Auckland seems to be New Zealand's international gateway city with most international visitors landing at Auckland International Airport. 

Once you've settled in to your choice of stay, there are many easy day trips you can make in your rental car, not to mention Harbour cruises and, of course, the restaurants and night life.

Within easy reach of Auckland city is the beautiful Coromandel Peninsula (below right) with its stunning golden beaches and relaxed lifestyle.

To the north, you can head to Whangarei and Cape Reinga where the Tasman Sea and Pacific Ocean currents meet.

But Auckland City itself is a wonderful experience. This multicultural city has a great range of attractions: from Kelly Tarlton's Antarctic Adventure and Under Water World on Tamaki Drive, just a few minute's drive from the city centre and easily accessible by rental car or bus, to a huge selection of vineyards also within easy driving distance.

Whatever your interests, there's a range of activities you can enjoy in and around Auckland. If you'd like to try your hand at sailing a Cup yacht, all you need to do is pop down to the Viaduct Basin and book yourself in as crew for a cruise.
