Take a moment to envision a beautiful city on an island in the middle of the southwestern Pacific Ocean. Got it? We bet we can describe that mental picture. You’re probably thinking of a little strip of land flanked by two harbours and surrounded by tall mountain peaks.
Well, guess what? You’re picturing Auckland, New Zealand. Yes, it exists and yes, you need to go there. Hop on one of our fantastic Auckland flights and send us a postcard from the “City of Sails”.
The flights to Auckland will touch down at Auckland Airport (AKL), 21km from the central business district. Hop on the Skybus that runs between the two terminals and it will take you straight to the city centre. Unless you want your own set of wheels, in which case you can book car hire.
If you’re arriving right as the sun is rising over the horizon, take care of your appetite at one of the breakfast cafes along Elliott Street. A classic meal of Maori porridge and a hot cup of coffee is a perfect way to start the day.
The afternoon is perfect for taking the ferry from Waitemata Harbour out to Rangitoto Island, a volcanic island just off the coast. Up your selfie game with a picture from the summit and then make your way back down to explore the lava tubes. Don’t worry, the volcano is extinct.
Are you arriving after dark? Perfect! Drop your bags at one of our Auckland hotels and then disappear into the night for some fun. The Britomart precinct is perfect for a cutting up a rug to some live music while knocking the drinks back one by one.
To live like a local, you’ve got to shop like a local. The Parnell Farmers Market is held every Saturday from 8am to 12pm, and it’s a perfect place to pick up fresh produce, local greens and Maori souvenirs. You can’t go home without souvenirs for your friends.
There you have it. We’ve told you what to do, where to go and how to get there. Now it’s up to you to book one of Wotif’s cheap flights to Auckland and split to New Zealand.
