The harbor-side city of Auckland is New Zealand’s only true metropolis and the vibrant economic heart of the country.

For most visitors to New Zealand, Auckland is the point of arrival. A few days soaking up the cultural and outdoor attractions here should be on every tourist’s to-do list. Because the monuments, museums, and art galleries here are some of the finest in the country.

The suburban coastline of the city is speckled with fine beaches, and the islands of the Hauraki Gulf provide a taste of New Zealand’s spectacular national park scenery right on the city’s doorstep
