- Make like an Aucklander and get out on the water. From a fishing trip to a dinner cruise to a boat you can sail yourself, there's something nautical for everyone.
- One Tree Hill is an Auckland, and thanks to the band U2, an international, must visit. The 360 degree view of Auckland is astounding, and the surrounding parkland is a lovely spot for a picnic.
- Catch the breathtaking view from the Sky Tower, browse the museums or the architecturally-acclaimed art gallery, see the sharks and penguins at Kelly Tarlton’s or sail the beautiful Waitemata Harbour.
- There are several small parks dotted around the city and a handful of enormous ones, most notably the famous Auckland Domain that surrounds the Auckland War Memorial Museum.
If you want to get back to nature near Auckland’s rugged coastlines, islands and various beaches then choose from Auckland’s camping and holiday parks. Options include camp tent sites, caravan/campervan sites, cabins, self-contained units and motel-style accommodation.
