A vibrant city of harbours, beaches and islands, Auckland is known as the “City of Sails”.
Catch a ferry to one of the islands dotted just offshore from the city. Waiheke is known for it's vineyards, sandy white beaches and quirky galleries, while Rangitoto is a dormant volcano laced with spectacular walking tracks. Many of the islands are within a 40-minute ferry ride from downtown Auckland.
This is the heart of Auckland, with a relaxed Pacific vibe by day and a night-time energy shared by the inner-city suburbs that surround it.
