Top sights in the City of Sails
If you’ve only got a day to look around Auckland, you’re going to be busy. A couple more days would be good, as it would be a shame to miss Waiheke Island and it will require a full day.
Start your day with a walk on Auckland’s main drag of Queen Street. Get your bearings, then walk west up Victoria St to the Sky Tower for a ride up to see magnificent views of the ‘City of Sails’.
Walk north down Hobson St, then wander the Viaduct Harbour before crossing the bridge over to the Wynyard Quarter, checking out the yachts and America’s Cup memorabilia along the way.
Have lunch at one of the Wynyard Quarter’s frontage restaurants or head into the Auckland Fish Markets, home to some superb seafood options.
