About Auckland

Auckland is located in the central northern part of New Zealand's North Island. Surrounded on three sides by water, the extraordinary terrain makes this city ideal for sailing. Many of the city's residents have their own private sailboats, which is why Auckland has the reputation for being "The City of a Thousand Sails". There is always a massive fleet of sailboats out on the ocean. It is also New Zealand's confluence of international culture. As you walk down the street, you can see a rich variety of 19th-Century colonial architecture. For a city like Auckland that focuses on nature and actively protects history and culture, there are also all kinds of museums and art galleries, preserving pieces of the indigenous Māori tribes. This quaint and natural city is definitely worth visiting.

Checking out towering dinosaur remains, witnessing the goose-bump inducing Maori Haka dance, discovering the inner workings of volcanoes, and visiting an armory complete with everything from Samurai swords to machine guns already sounds like a pretty full day; but that’s only scratching the surface of what New Zealand’s most important museum has on display. Permanent exhibits cover the People of the Pacific, the NZ war memorial, and exhibits on the country’s land and natural history. Temporary exhibits have featured everything from rugby to Egyptian Tombs, to the axe of Sir Edmund Hillary. The museum is located in the Auckland Domain. Admission is a $10 donation, unless you’re an Aucklander or happen to be there on ANZAC Day, in which case, your visit is free!
