Just a 3-hour flight from the eastern seaboard of Australia is a perfect long weekend away in Auckland, New Zealand’s largest city.
Auckland is the perfect mix of city sophistication and a stunning natural playground. From bungy jumping off the tallest building in New Zealand, the Sky Tower, to seeing some of the most impressive Māori artwork at Auckland Art Gallery Toi o Tāmaki, to catching a ferry to nearby Waiheke Island wineries, to exploring natural beauty like Mount Eden and Bethells black-sand beach. Of course, you’ll be sure to strike up a conversation with the friendly locals while you’re in town.
With so much to see and do, you’ll be hard-pressed to pack it all in but go on, have a try, we dare you.
