Sidharth's Top Auckland experiences

You are here

Auckland, a buzzing urban hub nestled between two contrasting coastlines, hosts a combination of metropolitan delights and natural landscapes.

Flying over the beautiful harbour was incredible. Such a thing can only be experienced in a country like New Zealand. It is a great way to see the city with a different perspective.

Kelly Tarlton's SEA LIFE Aquarium

Kelly Tarlton’s is home to over 80 different species of marine life. Stand close to a sub-Antarctic penguin colony or gaze on the world’s largest species of stingray as it glides silently overhead. For adventure seekers, try swimming with sharks.

Auckland Harbour Bridge climb and bungy

Scaling one of Auckland’s most iconic landmarks, the Auckland Harbour Bridge is a great way to see the city. Stand looking out into the harbour as the traffic moves hundreds of metres below you. For adrenalin junkies, try leaping from the bridge’s specially equipped jump pod in New Zealand’s only ‘ocean-touch’ bungy.


Matakana’s beautiful beaches, boutique vineyards, local arts scene and picturesque village with a superb farmers' market make this region a divine destination. For a day of exploring and wine tasting, indulge in a deluxe vineyard tour with a Tastes Tour of Matakana.

Sailing the Hauraki Gulf

Dotted with beautiful island sanctuaries, the Hauraki Gulf is the perfect place to explore by yacht or on a cruise. Discover wildlife reserves, sandy beaches and private coves. Swim waters teeming with marine life or go ashore to discover tranquil walks through native bush.

Artisan food and wine

Everywhere you turn in Auckland there are bars and eateries offering delectable and mouth-watering meals. Britomart, Viaduct Harbour and Wynyard Quarter are just a few of the precincts on offer, with food options from around the world as well as New Zealand’s own unique take on traditional favourites.

Jet boating Auckland Habour

For a real adrenalin rush, explore the harbour at high speed in an Auckland Adventure Jet. Feel the thrill as the jet boat hurtles you across the harbour in a ride packed with turns, spins and ocean spray.

Seaplane scenic tour

One of the best ways to discover Auckland is from the air. Take off from Auckland harbour in a seaplane and explore some of the regions most scenic vistas, from the magnificent volcanic cone of Rangitoto to the remote beauty of Great Barrier Island.  

Auckland Sky Tower 

Travel 328 metres up in glass-fronted lifts to the spectacular viewing platforms of Auckland’s tallest building, the Sky Tower. Take in unobstructed 360-degree views of the city or push yourself to the extreme and take a Sky walk or Sky jump.
