Fun Things to Do While Visiting Auckland, New Zealand

August 11, 2009 at 11:46 pm 3 comments

Auckland… the biggest city in New Zealand, and the most recognizable upon first sight. It’s chock full of fun things to do in the city, which is actually quite big. It’s fast growing, fast paced, and beautiful.

If you’re looking for a good list of things to do in Auckland, this lens is a good start. Whether you’re looking for a scenic scuba diving trip to the Coromandel Peninsula, or if you’d rather experience some of the natural beauty the Rotorua Thermal Area has to offer, there’s much to do in such a relatively compact area.

As for man-made attractions, Auckland isn’t lacking in those either. The Auckland Zoo is home to Operation Nest Egg, an ongoing program to help preserve and protect the kiwi population in New Zealand. A trip to the city wouldn’t be complete without a trip up the country’s tallest building, The Sky Tower. Panoramic views offer up miles upon miles of long distance viewing of coast and NZ landscape.

New Zealand is also rich in maritime history. One of the best marine museums can be found right on the shorefront of Auckland at the New Zealand National Maritime Museum. Rather have an up close and personal experience on the coast? Coast to Coast Tours will do just that (and they’re very experienced at what they do!).

    I spent 9 months in Auckland and there are indeed a lot of things to do while you are there, certainly more than there was when I was there 21 years ago.

    I loved the fact that the east and west coasts are so close together, so depending on the weather you could either go fishing / sailing / scuba diving on the east coast, or surfing on the west coast.

    I was playing around Google and came upon this great blog of yours. I noticed you talked about Coromandel Peninsula in New Zealand. Spook aka Kevin Moor has created a great lens about his recent trip there. He wrote it for the Squidoo Summer Sunshine Award Contest for Charity and is donating 100% to Friends of the Park, my favorite charity.

    I enjoyed my visit here!
