1. Visit Tiritiri Matangi Island

Location:Hauraki Gulf, Auckland

Tiritiri Matangi Island is a veritable showcase of NZ wildlife that has been repopulated with selected species of native birds. The island is designated pest-free zone completely devoid of predators that could have a negative impact on the birds and their food sources. As a result, many endangered species now call the island home, and after years and years of planning may use it as a stepping stone towards increasing their numbers.

2. Enjoy Cornwall Park

Location:Epsom, Auckland

This landscaped park centred on the volcanic cone of Auckland's One Tree Hill is spectacular for many reasons outside its well-kept natural features and provides a lovely and relaxing escape from the rush of urban life in the city. Simply put, Cornwall Park is huge; it's filled with walking tracks, oak trees, livestock grazing in various spots with great public barbeque facilities and even lingering examples of Maori architecture.

3. Visit Rangitoto Island

Location:Hauraki Gulf

A volcanic island typical of New Zealand that sits majestically just off the coast of Auckland boasting a rare, distinct landscape consisting of rugged lava crops, lush native bush and golden sandy coves. Rangitoto Island makes for an amazing little escape just a short distance from the city itself. Well worth the short ferry ride it takes to get there, once you've reached Rangitoto's shores you'll discover its many scenic natural highlights and take in a variety of panoramic views and impressive natural formations that only add to its charm.

4. Enjoy Waitemata Harbour

Location:Waitemata Harbour

Maritime culture has long played a significant part in Auckland's society and development and Auckland Harbour (or Waitemata Harbour in the native Maori tongue) is one of the main symbols of the city as a whole. Always changing with the weather and with a typically beautiful outlook, the harbour is a hive of activity both on and off the water as numerous boats make their way in and out of its waters.

5. Visit Auckland Sky Tower

Location:Victoria St W & Federal St, Auckland

As New Zealand's tallest man-made structure at an impressive 328 metres, if you're after some epic views then the Sky Tower should be the first stop after you touch ground in Auckland. you can buy a general entry ticket to experience Sky Tower or take things up a notch with the scenic and adventurous SkyWalk or SkyJump.

6. Climb Auckland Harbour Bridge

Location:105 Curran St, Westhaven, Auckland

Auckland's harbour is an impressive feature in and of itself, and its bridge plays a big part in adding to the area's charm. One of the true highlights of the bridge is that it offers visitors the chance to participate in a climb experience with Auckland Bridge Climb by AJ Hackett that will allow you to harness up and join your fellow climbers to see the harbour from one of the best available angles.

7. Ascend Mount Eden

Location:Mount Eden

While its claim to fame is being the highest volcanic peak in mainland Auckland, it's the views from the top that make a visit to Mount Eden worth the time and effort. With a summit that stands 196m above sea level, the peak is the perfect spot from which to take in an impressive 360-degree panorama of Auckland and its charming harbour that is ideal for photo opportunities for the visiting traveller.

8. Visit Auckland Zoo

Location:Motions Rd, Auckland

The largest wildlife exhibit in all of New Zealand can be encountered at Auckland Zoo, one of the most acclaimed zoological venues in the entire southern hemisphere. Friendly and knowledgeable staff, an always-improving environment for the animals and an ever-changing variety of weird and wonderful creatures on display throughout the year ensures that families will have a great day out.

9. Explore Auckland Museum

Location:The Auckland Domain, Parnell, Auckland

A popular attraction in and around Auckland, you can't go wrong with a visit to the historic and comprehensive Auckland Museum. The museum features a nice blend of both Maori and European historic influences which reflects Auckland's background as a whole, with a wide range of exhibits on offer.

10. Visit Kelly Tarlton's SEA LIFE Aquarium

Location:23 Tamaki Dr, Orakei, Auckland

Just outside the Auckland CBD is the area's popular Kelly Tarlton's SEA LIFE Aquarium, the card-carrier for the area's aquarium offerings and the home of New Zealand's only collection of subantarctic penguins and many other species of interesting marine wildlife. The penguin exhibit, in particular, offers an experience that is fairly interactive, as many of them will actually approach the standing area as long as you're still enough and don't scare them off. If penguins are particularly your thing, there's also a special (optional) Penguin Experience that will take you on a behind-the-scenes aquarium tour and get out on the ice yourself.
