Day rolls into night and ignites with sound and light. Sleeping volcanoes rise to the sky and the city greets the sea.

Waterfront restaurants serve up cuisine from around the world and cocktail bars hide down cobbled lanes. Volcanoes wrap around lush parklands crisscrossed by shaded walkways. Beautiful beaches are 10 minutes’ drive away and brunch is an art form.
 
Walk up volcanoes or through art galleries and museums; find a new favourite restaurant or go paddle boarding with Rangitoto Island as your guide.

things to do

"I may be biased but you can’t top a live rugby match at Eden Park – especially if the ABs are playing. The atmosphere is so awesome, it’s easy to get to on the train, and there are some cool places in Kingsland for a drink or dinner first."
