The largest and most populous city in New Zealand, Auckland combines a rich history and thriving contemporary culture in an abundance of museums, art galleries, and performance venues.
Explore Auckland's surroundings by going to Matakana Village (in Matakana), Waikawau Beach (in Waikawau) and Waiheke Island (Wine Tours & Tastings, Oneroa Beach, &more). There's still lots to do: learn about all things military at Auckland Museum, take in the local highlights with Walking tours, take in panoramic vistas at SkyTower, and head off the coast to Waiheke Island.

To find ratings, other places to visit, where to stay, and other tourist information, go to the Auckland holiday site.

Perth, Australia to Auckland is an approximately 10- hour flight. Traveling from Perth to Auckland, you'll lose 4 hours due to the time zone difference. When traveling from Perth in January, plan for much colder days in Auckland, with highs around 22°C, while nights are about the same with lows around 22°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 25th (Mon) to allow enough time to travel to Queenstown.
