Auckland may not be the capital, but the largest city in New Zealand certainly won’t be put to one side. Straddling the Tasman Sea and the Pacific Ocean, the city’s unique placement and epic natural surrounds makes Auckland truly one-of-a-kind. A photographer’s paradise, Auckland is framed by two stunning harbours and volcanic cones, while the rainforests, thermal springs, sprawling parks add to the spectacular panorama too. With so many stunning landmarks, few visitors restrict themselves to the city scene, instead opting for an adventurous holiday of hikes, dives, canyoning and even skydiving. If those Auckland attractions sound like too much hard work, then we suggest kicking back at one of the beautiful beaches, or trying out the delectable dining and world-famous wines. One thing’s for sure, you’ll be glad you made time for striking Auckland.
