Auckland Weekend Getaways
New Zealand’s biggest city is the perfect destination for a weekend getaway or staycation. No matter what you’re after, Auckland’s got it.
One day of your Auckland weekend getaway should always include some sightseeing. A visit to the Sky Tower is a must for everyone, just as much a trip over to Devonport to check out the canons and the view back to the city’s skyline. And Viaduct Harbour and Wynyard Quarter are the perfect places for a leisurely stroll on the waterfront. A myriad of restaurants, cafes and bars invite you for a snack or drink if you need a break and a cold drink.
If it’s beaches you’re after, you have plenty of options. The city beaches in Takapuna and Mission Bay Beach are great for those who like to combine a beach stroll with a meal while the black beaches on Auckland’s West Coast (like famous Piha Beach) are more remote and wild.
Speaking of eating and drinking, why not hop on the ferry to Waiheke Island and spend a day or two exploring the local wine? There are over 20 boutique vineyards on Waiheke, all of them with their unique flair and specialities.
Other Auckland islands that are great for a day of adventuring are Tiritiri Matangi Island and Rangitoto Island
Families will love saying hi to the furry friends at Auckland Zoo or walking through the underwater tunnel at Sea Life Kelly Tarlton’s and much more.
And if the weather doesn’t play along, how about a visit to one of Auckland’s many museums? No matter if you’re after history, art or the maritime life, there’s plenty to learn.
Be it a romantic getaway in Auckland, a girls/guys weekend out or a weekend with the family, our Auckland weekend getaways are designed for everyone to find their right fit.
