AUCKLAND CITY TRAVEL GUIDE NEW ZEALAND

Auckland Travel GuideAuckland Travel Guide - Not only is Auckland close to the beaches but it is also close to over twelve different Islands. The Auckland lifestyle is ranked among the best in the world. It is one of the best cities to visit and one of the best to live in. In the Maori language this is called the city of 100 lovers, Tamaki Makau Rau, because it is said to be a place that is desired by all and conquered by many. There are 48 volcanic cones and more than 50 islands in the Auckland region and that is why 1.3 million people call this area their home. It is the largest city in New Zealand claiming one third of the entire population of the country. The Auckland Videos can also be found on World Travel Videos as well as more than 50 other cities.

One of the best ways to appreciate the City of Auckland is from out on the water. Swimming you can see some but not nearly as much as on a boat. Regular ferries service the islands of the Hauraki Gulf or you can take a charter boat or a classic yacht or a speed boat and really appreciate the City of Sails from the water. It is a big place for Windsurfing in the bays and kayaking is a very popular pastime also.

Mount Eden AucklandThe hiking trails in the Waitakere and Hunua Ranges will take you into the cool, peaceful rainforest. The Hauraki Gulf has lots of dolphins and whales, which you can view on regular boat trips on the Dolphin Explorer. At Kelly Tarlton’s Antarctic Encounter and Underwater World you can see the sea life from glass tunnels underwater. Aucklanders’ past times include rugby in the winter and cricket in the summer. With more than 30 golf courses and summer concerts at the crater of an extinct volcano at the Auckland Domain makes for interesting fun.
