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.
Visit Orewa Beach and Bethells Beach for some beach relaxation. You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at Muriwai Gannet Colony and Mill Creek Bird & Animal Encounters. Change things up with these side-trips from Auckland: Cooks Beach (Shakespeare Cliff Scenic and Historic Reserve & Purangi Estate Limited), Hahei Beach Walk (in Hahei) and Warkworth (Tawharanui Regional Park & Goat Island Marine Reserve). There's still lots to do: tour the pleasant surroundings at Browns Bay Beach, learn about winemaking at Villa Maria Auckland Winery, brush up on your military savvy at Auckland War Memorial Museum, and contemplate the long history of Howick Historical Village.

To find reviews, other places to visit, traveler tips, and more tourist information, read our Auckland road trip planning site .

If you are flying in from United States, the closest major airports are Auckland International Airport and Hamilton International Airport. In September, daily temperatures in Auckland can reach 55°F, while at night they dip to 55°F. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 30th (Mon) early enough to travel back home.
