Auckland, the art of a pleasant life
A city that’s wild at heart
Always listed among the world’s most liveable cities, Auckland nestles between volcanoes, islands and beaches. Although it’s New Zealand’s largest city, it’s a pleasant size to explore. Book a flight to Auckland and get ready to try stand-up paddle on Takapuna Beach or to discover your talents as a surfer off the sweep of black sand that is Piha Beach. If you’re a morning person, head out hiking on Rangitoto, one of Auckland’s extinct volcanoes. You’ll walk among lush landscapes and be rewarded with a panoramic view over the city. Back from your escapade, discover Auckland’s village-like side with an afternoon at Devonport.
A love of sport
After taking the city’s pulse, set off to see the symbolic sights of New Zealand. As well as a plane ticket to Auckland you’ll need a ticket to see the Auckland Blues in Eden Park: rugby is the country’s main sport. Your holiday in Auckland will also take you to Harbour Bridge if you’re up for an adrenaline rush, you’ll be bungee jumping off the bridge. Continue on towards the Waterfront. You can admire the bay from here, and hop aboard a sailing boat to discover why Auckland is known as "the city of sails".
Culture and fun, the perfect combination
To find out more about the city’s history, head to the Auckland Domain, the city’s largest park, and visit the Auckland War Memorial Museum. The oldest museum in the city, it presents archives, objects and works of art. But Auckland’s heritage is also about leisure and fun. Booking your travel to Auckland will naturally lead you to the famous Sky Tower. From a height of 328m you can admire the view over the whole region, and then head back down to test your luck at the casino. Have fun with the family at Auckland Zoo, among the 135 animal species who live there, from tigers to zebras and elephants.

Each year, the end of year festivities begin in November in Auckland, with the Farmers Santa Parade. The city centre is taken over by a huge parade, made up of giant floats and balloons, live bands, dancers and cannon loads of confetti. The idea is to celebrate Santa who will be making an appearance on his sleigh. Experience Christmas spirit, Aussie style, complete with roasted chestnuts and warm, sunny weather. Santa will come down to Aotea Square to meet the children, before returning a month later, his sleigh loaded with gifts. <br/>

With this exhibition, the Auckland Art Gallery explores the link between contemporary art and the ancient cultures of the South Pacific region.
The word "moana" means a vast expanse, so it's perfectly suited to describing the ocean. The expression is used in New Zealand as well as in the Cook Isles, Samoa and Tonga. The movement "Moana Oceania" reclaims its attachment to this regional culture and perspective, from an artistic standpoint.
Paul Tangata and Teuane Tibbo were the pioneers of this movement and were soon joined by many other artists. They are now invited to exhibit their works in Auckland.

It's the beginning of an exciting time for those who relish forehands, backhands, sneaky slices, elegant lobs and aces. Every year in early January, the ASB Classic (also known as the ATP Auckland Open) launches the world tennis season, coming just before the Australian Open, the first Grand Slam tournament of the year. It's played on a hard surface (a striking blue with white lines), and play often goes on after dark on the floodlit courts. Prepare for an emotional rollercoaster, like in 2003, when we saw wins from the very young Eleni Daniilidou and the almost veteran Gustavo Kuerten.

A volcanic island, Rangitoto lies just off the coast of Auckland. In Maori language, its name means "blood red sky", in memory of a bloody battle with the tribe who lived there, long before the English bought the island in 1854.

Since 1890 it has been a nature reserve. Instantly recognisable with its conical shape, the island is 5.5km wide and is easily visible from Auckland.
On the island you can hike up the volcano for a magnificent 360° view, visit black lava caves, explore the island's coastline by kayak, and much more.
