Auckland

Auckland Highlights

When you alight your Wellington to Auckland train in the City of Sails, you’ll be in the heart of New Zealand’s biggest city, a short walk from the waterfront and the buzz of the capital city.

While you’re in Auckland, take a leap from the Sky Tower, spend a day at the vineyards of Waiheke Island, explore the Hauraki Gulf Marine Park, see sub-Antarsctic penguins at Kelly Tarlton’s, or visit the Auckland Museum to learn more about the city and its history.

Auckland is also your gateway to the natural beauties of the Bay of Islands and Northland, famed for its ancient Kauri forests and the sweeping sands of Ninety Mile Beach, leading all the way to New Zealand’s northern-most point, Cape Reinga
