Things To Do In Auckland, New Zealand

Auckland New Zealand

My Picks on ‘Things to do in Auckland’

For culture and history you may wish to visit the Auckland Museum where there is an excellent Maori concert/cultural performance.

Visit the New Zealand Maritime Museum my favourite part of this museum is the 1950’s vintage NZ beach house (Bach).  There is also activities for children and daily sailings on a historic vessel ‘Breeze’.

Climb Auckland Harbour Bridge or Jump off the world’s first harbour bridge bungy with Auckland Bridge Bungy

Hike Rangitoto Volcano in Auckland’s Hauraki Gulf, a regular ferry service with Fuller’s.

Auckland Hop on, Hop Off Explorer – There are two different bus routes where you can combine them in one day. The bus stops at fourteen attractions with full commentary and departs every 30 minutes.

Spend a day on Waiheke Island, only 35mins by ferry from downtown Auckland.  Waiheke is popular for its stunning beach’s, vineyards & wineries, art scene and watersports.

    New Zealand is number one on my bucket list! Seems difficult at the moment, things in Greece being what they are. But, soon as it becomes possible, I will be sure to ply you with questions!

    I love the Hop-on-hop-off busses. You get to see a lot for the price of that ticket. My husband has been in Aukland many years ago and told me is very beautiful. I’d very much like to visit it someday. Thank you for joining #TheWeeklyPostcard.

    Great pics! Was just in Auckland in February this year and loved it. Of course, I was the crazy person jumping from the SkyTower, but I did get out and about around the city. Definitely want to go back and spend more time in your great city.
