Quest Auckland offers even more upper-end central accommodation, with vast apartment-style rooms. The friendly staff at Quest Auckland are ready to provide tour and ticket assistance, too.

Where to find the best restaurants in Auckland

Seafood fanatics will love the small cluster of restaurants in the waterfront Viaduct Harbor area, which champion fresh oyster bars. For a range of restaurants and cuisine styles, dine in the downtown central business district – here, you’ll find a mix of relaxed Mediterranean-inspired eateries and fine dining restaurants serving culinary fusion delights. Among the tree-lined boulevards of the upscale Parnell neighborhood, you’ll discover fancy bistros and trendy sushi bars.

The most popular things to do in Auckland

Get out of the city center and explore Mount Eden, a peaceful suburb south of the central business district, named after its looming, grass-covered volcanic cone. The cone is cast in flowery gardens and shrub bushes – at the summit you’ll be rewarded with panoramic views across Auckland. For an equally stunning Auckland viewpoint, visit the Sky Tower, a futuristic white and silver sharp-pointed skyscraper, with a dizzyingly-tall observation deck and revolving restaurant. Get to grips with New Zealand’s captivating history at the Auckland War Memorial Museum, an enormous Neo-Classical structure fronted by stately colonnades. Inside, discover exhibits based on military and natural history, alongside displays of old-world Maori artifacts. Culture vultures, meanwhile, can enjoy collections of local and international art – from the 11th century to contemporary work – at the Auckland Art Gallery.

Best ways to get around Auckland

Cruise around central Auckland and into the suburbs via the city’s extensive and easy-to-use public transport network of buses, ferries, and trains. The network is integrated and accessible with an AT HOP card – a reusable top-up ticket. Some of Auckland’s surrounding sights are easier to reach by car, so if you’re planning on exploring the surrounding city areas it’s handy to rent your own vehicle. The city itself can also be navigated by car. For total ease of transport, get around by taxicab.
