The national capital of Wellington is 310 miles south of Auckland, while Green Bay is 7 miles to the southwest.

Auckland is in a category all on its own. No visit is complete without seeing Mt. Eden and the University of Auckland. You'll also find Sky Tower and Kelly Tarlton's Underwater World while you're at it!

SheepWorld and Rainbow's End are wonderful places to spend some quality time with your children. Want more? Treasure Island Adventure Golf and Parnell Baths will ensure the good times keep on coming.

You and your family can take loads of photos with the leathery lizards and warm-blooded mammals at the Auckland Zoo and the Butterfly Creek. Combined with the Reptile Park, you and the family are sure to have an amazing zoological experience.

The area's vineyards certainly know how to dazzle the senses. Meet the devoted cellar masters, sample the latest vintage and enjoy a great day out at the Artisan Wine or the Stonyridge. Looking for the next stop? The Babich Wines and the Villa Maria Estate should also be added to your itinerary.

Whether you're mad about table games or you simply enjoy the sights and sounds of casinos, a safe bet here is the SkyCity Casino or the Sky City Casino.

Strange and unusual vines and creepers, leafy trees and long, twisting footpaths await you at the Wintergarden and the Auckland Botanical Gardens. Green thumbs should also wander around the Parnell Rose Gardens and the Dove-Myer Robinson Park.

Bring along some lunch and enjoy the tranquil, green surroundings of One Tree Hill Domain and Auckland Domain. There's also plenty of room to lie around on the grass at Goat Island and Victoria Park.

If you are looking for information about the Auckland area, chat with the staff at Princes Warf Visitor Information Centre.

Enjoy the view over the flowing water as it plunges into the bubbling pool below at Karekare Falls.

Surrounded by leafy trees and soft grass, Kawakawa Bay is a favorite escape for local wildlife and travelers alike.

Looking for a place where you can take a break from sightseeing for a bit? Head over to Piha Beach or Orewa Beach for a great day outdoors. Onetangi Beach and Oneroa Beach are also recommended.

Want to escape the stresses of modern life? Make your way over to Mount Victoria and Kawau Island. Nature enthusiasts will also have a great time at Waitakere Ranges and Tiritiri Matangi.

Schedule a visit to some of the popular cultural institutions in the area. Savor the quiet and relaxing atmosphere as you check out the varied collections at the Auckland War Memorial Museum and the Artspace. Another two to consider are the Auckland Art Gallery and the Artstation.

Overflowing with pieces of remnant watercraft and other significant marine artifacts, the New Zealand National Maritime Museum, the Royal New Zealand Navy Museum and the Voyager Maritime Museum are fascinating attractions for the entire family.

Examine the latest gadgets and expand your knowledge on all things science at Stardome Observatory.

Build on your knowledge of art, and perhaps even get something to take back home with you at one of the numerous exhibition spaces. Start off your tour of this creative hotspot at the John Leech Gallery and the Oedipus Rex Gallery. If you can fit them in, the Zealandia Sculpture Garden and the Lopdell House Gallery are also well worth a look.

History buffs can explore the past at the Devonport Museum and the Warkworth and District Museum. The Bohemian Museum and the Howick Historical Village are also highly esteemed options.

Auckland Town Hall and Government House are certainly worth taking a look at, even if you're not a passionate history buff. When it comes to days of old, there's always something else to know. Kinder House and Old Government House are two more insightful places to stop by.

Be sure to make time to watch the water ebb and flow past Grafton Bridge. This heritage structure has played an important role in connecting the city's residents.

The spiritual side of the region can be glimpsed at St. Patrick's Cathedral and St. Paul's Church. If you want to check out some more religious sites, keep an eye out for tours at All Saints Anglican Church and St Mary's Cathedral.

Before you pack up your bags and head back home, be sure to see some of the area's lesser-known attractions. Half Moon Bay Marina and Snowplanet are recommended options. Also, consider checking out the University of Auckland Library and Aotea Square if you can squeeze it in.

Accommodation in Auckland

You'll have no troubles finding the best lodging in Auckland. Expedia's lodging page features 145 options in this highly popular destination.

If you and your travel companions are keen on finding a room at the upper end of the spectrum, you'll be sure to be delighted at the Hotel DeBrett, at 2 High Street, or the Hilton Auckland, at Princes Wharf 147 Quay Street. If those don't suit, be sure to check out the Auckland Northshore Motels & Holiday Park, at 52 Northcote Road, and the Silverfern Backpackers, at 234 Hobson Street, two of the cheaper options in town.

No journey to Auckland would be complete without a visit to University of Auckland. If your time is here is short and you'd prefer to stay close to this iconic attraction, the Braemar on Parliament Street and the Skycity Grand Hotel are both worth checking out.
