“The City of Sails”

published 13/08/2002

ProPlenty to see and do

ConsExpensive to get to

Auckland is New Zealand's largest city, situated at the top of the North Island with a population of around 1.5 million. This represents about 33% of the population of the whole country! Auckland is also supposedly the second largest urban sprawl in the world, after Los Angeles, which might give...

If you are ever in Auckland I definitely recommend this "Rock the Boat" trip. The "Rock" is a boat offering overnight cruises on the beautiful Bay of Islands in the very north of New Zealand about a 4 hour drive north of Auckland. The captain and his friendly crew will meet you at Paihia wharf at...

General over view: Auckland was my first destination when I arrived in New Zealand, traveling into the city and seeing the Sky Tower for the first time was really cool, I remember thinking I made it! I am really here!! The City is big but easy to get around using the tram system they have in...

Cons Auckland traffic is a killer

Auckland. I visit Auckland a couple of times a year for various reasons and always manage to find a new side to this city on every visit. This sprawling city is the largest in New Zealand and approx 1/3rd of the countries population live there. This makes for an interesting multi-cultural city...

“Great Auckland”

published 19/04/2004

ProWide range of Activities available

ConsLong Distances to travel

New Zealand Earlier this year me and my family visited New Zealand, we spent 3 weeks there and we cannot wait to return. The key to New Zealand’s individuality is its remote location in the world, situated to the East of Australia’s coast it requires a 2 hour flight from Brisbane or Sydney across...

Proempty beaches & friendly faces

Conshaving to leave

Home to 1/3 of the entire population of NZ, Auckland is a reasonable sized city surrounded by a beautiful harbour and home to the America's Cup, and has everything on offer that you will find in most other major cities plus that little bit of extra "kiwi" touch. In the city centre you will find...

Proclean,unique,loads to see and do,great people

Consa hell of a long way!

Auckland is New Zealand's largest city and is immaculate,clean ,bright and cosmopolitan and small enough to explore on foot. New Zealand is not exactly a weekend break away and "By eck" the journey is long especially if you go the Pacific route ,however,the rewards to be found in Auckland are...

ConsIt's one hell of a long flight!

I grew up in a place called Invercargill, right down the bottom! It wasn't until I was slightly older that I shifted to live in Auckland. I loved every minute of it! The climate in Auckland is great, it is knowledge that the further up New Zealand that you get is warmer. Auckland does a sub...

“God defend New Zealand”

published 05/07/2005

ProFeels more homely than home

ConsReally tight on speed limits

The first thing I notice every time I step off the plane at Auckland International Airport is just how much easier the Kiwis take life. New Zealand time doesn't seem to involve hours and minutes but more days. For a nation of 4 million, what they lack in population they make up in passion. On an...

Consbecoming a victim of its own popularity.

Those who just pass through Auckland on their way to the thrills on offer in the rest of the country don't know what they are missing.

“The sub-tropical north”

published 07/08/2000

Probeautiful, loads to do and see

Consnothing like it in the UK

A lot of people go just to Auckland and can tend to miss out on Northland. Don't get me wrong, there's loads to do in Auckland and it's the biggest city in NZ and well worth seeing, but you're missing out on a lot further north. About three hours drive north you'll come to Whangarei, the gateway...

ConsNone that I have found so far

Auckland, the city most believe should be the capital, is the biggest and most lively place in New Zealand. The most attractive aspect of Auckland in particular is that marries together the typical laid back New Zealand lifestyle, with the modern conviniences and services of any big city...
