Discover Auckland for a winter weekend getaway
Best of Both Worlds
Book your long weekend and experience the best of both worlds - breath-taking scenery, a vibrant central city, world-class food and wine, sparkling harbours, island retreats, great shopping and spectacular arts and events. Best of all, with so many experiences so close by, it’s easy to hop from one adventure to the next.
Stay cosy indoors and explore Auckland’s rich arts and culture at the Auckland Art Gallery and Auckland Museum, or sip on fine wine at one of the many vineyards around the region. Then tuck into amazing cuisine at a waterfront restaurant in the central city or simply relax and let the experts show you the best foodie spots around Auckland on a gourmet food tour.
Auckland’s mild winter weather means you can still have fun outdoors too. Just a 40 minute drive from downtown, the Waitakere Ranges Regional Park has more than 250 kilometres of walking and hiking tracks and is home to lush rainforest, gushing waterfalls, rugged coastline and wild black-sand beaches.
For adventure seekers, Auckland is one big playground. First stop is the Sky Tower. As well as the incredible views from the observation deck, you can ‘SkyJump’ off it in a base jump by wire, or ‘SkyWalk’ around the outside on a narrow platform 192 metres above the ground. Get a bird’s eye view of Auckland with a scenic flight by seaplane or go ziplining above beautiful native bush and vineyards on Waiheke Island.
