Why It's Worth It

Auckland, the "City of the Sails," will energize and excite you—culturally, scenically, geographically and gastronomically—with its eclectic, diverse atmosphere and landscapes. Explore spectacular volcanic islands; pest-free wildlife sanctuaries; historic coastal defence sites; dark forests; white, golden and black sand beaches; cruise the sparkling waters of the beautiful Hauraki Gulf dotted with more than 50 islands; savour world-class wines and cuisine; and experience the colour and culture of the world's largest Polynesian community. —Justine Tyerman
