When the main event is over, it’s time to get out and play. And with so many different experiences so close, you can do it all while you’re here.
If you’re in Auckland for an international show, event or one of the many cultural or food festivals, why not stay and play? Walk through untouched native rainforest, go island hopping in the Hauraki Gulf or get your blood pumping with extreme action adventures. Hit the boutique shopping precincts for some retail therapy or wander through the Auckland Art Gallery or Auckland Museum for world-class exhibitions. Indulge in contemporary cuisine at one of the many restaurants or sample award-winning wines at nearby vineyards. It’s all here in Auckland, because when the curtain comes down, the show never stops.
