Although not the capital, Auckland is the most populated city in New Zealand. With a towering skyline, the best and only way to see its best side is by helicopter ride. Spanning the city, the tour not only points out landmarks and attractions but also takes you past the coastline and over Waitemata harbour. For the most up close and personal experience to a volcano, the tour isn’t one to miss. Ranging from a quick ten minute ride to a coast-to-coast half an hour trip, there’s no better way to experience New Zealand’s most populated city.
If heights aren’t really your thing, but you still want to see the best Auckland has to offer, then why not hop on a bus instead? Running from 9am until 4pm, the bus service is perfect for those looking to get around while seeing the best bits of Auckland. The freedom to get on and off at your leisure lets you control your exploration of New Zealand’s most populous city perfectly.
For food done the Kiwi way, Auckland has a lot in the way of choice. If you’re looking for burgers with a twist, Burgerfuel has the ability to satisfy all your hunger needs. Using quality, fresh ingredients, they take the idea of the gourmet burger and show you that they know best!
If your style is a little less ‘in your face’, and you’d rather a more relaxed tear-and-share setting, then look no further than Depot. TV chef Al Brown’s restaurant takes fun and relaxation in the form of dining to new heights. With food self-proclaimed as ‘fast, fun and fresh’, there’s no-where better to sit and relax with friends while grabbing a bite.
Things to do
For a city break on a slightly smaller scale, you can do no better than visiting New Zealand’s beloved capital! What Wellington lacks in size it makes up for in entertainment and culture, and if you’re up for a laugh, why not pop down to Wellington’s Central Park and bear witness to New Zealand’s very own Comedy Festival. Three weeks of world famous comedy is something not to be missed if you’re lucky enough to be in the capital while it’s on.
Arrive in Wellington a few months earlier from late February, and you’ll be just in time for the New Zealand International Arts Festival. Presenting acts that range from theatre and dance to music and literature, there’s something for everyone in the way of the arts – the true way to experience Kiwi culture while in the capital city.
