What to know before you fly to Auckland?
Direct flights from Australia to Auckland depart daily and there’s really no wrong time of year to visit this beautiful city. Summer is sunny and mild, and while winter can be rainy, the city has no shortage of galleries, museums or cosy bars and pubs.
If you’re booking flights to Auckland you’ll be happy to know that walking is one of the best ways to see the city up close, given its smaller size compared to other world cities. Hot tip for public transport is to get an AT HOP card, a prepaid travel card similar to the Myki, Opal or go cards in use here in Australian capital cities.
Auckland is also a foodie’s delight, with incredible restaurants, wineries, and great coffee just about everywhere you go.
