Dynamic and charming, Auckland offers a wide array of things to do and see. Start with a visit to the Sky Tower. As the tallest man-made structure in New Zealand, the iconic Sky Tower offers 360 degree views of the city. If you are feeling adventurous, walk around the pergola at Skywalk or take a controlled free-fall jump at Skyjump. At SKYCITY, take your pick from the 20 food and beverage establishments, with well-known New Zealand chefs serving fresh seasonal and local produce.
One of Auckland’s top attractions, Kelly Tarlton’s SEA LIFE Aquarium showcases over 30 live animal exhibits, including the world’s biggest Antarctic penguin colony exhibit. You will also be able to enjoy up-close interactions with the sharks and penguins.

You will also meet Phoebe the Stingray, a resident of the aquarium for over 27 years. The Seahorse Kingdom is also worth a visit as you will be able to spot some very beautiful seahorses, including the world’s only Spiny Sea Dragons.
Having stood for over 100 years, the Victoria Park Market is a heritage site, as it is the oldest Victorian industrial building in the region.
