Welcome to the largest city in New Zealand! I used to live in Auckland when I first moved to New Zealand back in 2018 (I even spent a short time in Hamilton.) While there, I worked at the Auckland Museum as a Senior Administrator, which wasn’t the worst job, but being a blogger is much better!

Because I lived in Auckland and visit the city all the time, I know so much, and that’s great news for you!

Auckland is a common stop on any New Zealand itinerary, especially if you plan to spend a decent amount of time on the North Island. To help make your time there memorable, I’ve worked hard to craft blogs and lists of activities that will do just that!

From the classic stops you’ll find on the internet to my own hidden gems I have discovered over the years!

Best Things to do in Auckland

Auckland may be “just a big city” but there is so much to see and do in Auckland it’s honestly overwhelming. The best part, you can learn a ton about New Zealand, see magnificent volcanic beaches, go wine tasting or even take a day trip to famous attractions such as Hobbito or the Waitomo Cave.

This blog includes it all, and only the very best activities make up the list!
