The best things to do in Auckland, New Zealand when on a cruise

Auckland is the largest city in New Zealand, and as you can imagine there is plenty to see and do. During your stop here while on your Australia & New Zealand cruise, you’ll have the opportunity to see Kiwi culture at its best.

The following suggestions for things to do in Auckland are in no way exhaustive of all that this city has to offer. Here are our top picks, from your friends at

Happy Traveler Comment
I am writing you this note because I want you to know what a great employee you have in Robin! We have worked with her now for at least two if not more cruises, and she always handles everything quickly and promptly and with ease for us. We have had to change dates a couple of times with the latest cruise we are booking with your company and she always handles it graciously and with ease. Robin is great to work with, and with customer service as good as hers is we will keep coming back to her for our travel needs! Thanks! — Tyson B.

Hike One Tree Hill– Once you reach the top of this volcanic cone, you will have a stunning 360-degree view of the city. The land that surrounds the hill is full of craters that children and adults will have fun exploring. Before you leave, be sure to visit Acacia Cottage, Auckland’s oldest wooden building, constructed in 1841.

Travel to the top of Sky Tower– The Sky Tower is the tallest structure in the Southern Hemisphere, and it’s pretty hard to miss. In less than 40 seconds, a high-speed elevator will take you up the building’s 1,100 feet for spectacular views of the city. If you’re feeling a bit adventurous, you can even bungee jump!

Visit theAuckland Museum – The history of the South Pacific comes alive at this well-designed museum, great for visitors of all ages. On the ground floor, you will find a display of Maori artifacts including a 25-meter war canoe. On the upper floors you will find interesting exhibits about New Zealand’s military history.
