Every shop, café and restaurant is different, but there’s a strong sense of community in K’ Road, a favourite gathering place for artists, students, musicians and writers. High fashion sits comfortably next to retro, vintage and streetwear stores. Unique design shops offer everything from imported handmade jewellery to locally made home furnishings, and music stores sell enviable vinyl collections and instruments. Among all this are some of the most unique cafés, restaurants, bars and clubs in the city. There are plenty of places to just sit back with a perfect coffee, and when it comes to dining, Auckland’s multicultural diversity is reflected in the cuisine on offer: Middle Eastern, Asian, European Fusion, Indian, Mexican and even Portugese. K’ Road’s nightlife is perhaps Auckland’s most colourful; the strip is home to cabaret-style restaurants, karaoke bars, gay clubs and local pubs offering live music.

Piha is a scenic black-sand surf beach on the rugged coast west of Auckland. There are several walks through native forest in the surrounding hills. A laid-back seaside village 45 minutes west of Auckland city, Piha is popular with local kiwis - especially in summertime. The dramatic beach, which is marked at each end by rugged cliffs, is a popular surfing location. The water has strong and often dangerous currents. However, in summer, surf lifesavers patrol an area clearly flagged for swimmers.  You can take surfing lessons or try abseiling down the Piha canyon. Bring a picnic or visit the beachside surf club for a bite to eat.

Meet Auckland’s youngest volcano and its picturesque neighbour. Don’t leave Auckland without a trip to Rangitoto Island, just a 25-minute ferry ride from downtown Auckland. The 360-degree views from the summit are incredible, but be warned: your photos will never do them justice. Take the one-hour Summit Track through rugged lava fields and forest, and stop off to explore the lava tunnels and caves on the way – bring a torch. If you’d rather not make the climb or you’ve got little ones in tow, join a guided tour on the 4WD road train to the top. Rangitoto’s dramatic landscapes contrast to the gently rolling pastures of neighbouring Motutapu Island. Venture across the causeway that links the two and explore Motutapu’s World War II bunkers, tunnels and gun emplacements. For a glimpse into the history and cultural significance of these two islands, experience Te Haerenga, a guided, interactive tour of Rangitoto and Motutapu with Ngai Tai tribal guides.

At 196 metres, Maungawhau - Mt Eden is the highest volcano in Auckland and one of our most culturally and archaeologically significant sites. In ancient times, the mountain was occupied by Māori, whose ancestors remain buried here.  The summit served as a fortified hill, providing a valuable vantage point for defence.  The slope of the mountain was modified to form flat terraces for housing and food storage pits. Māori named this mountain for the whau tree, a light and buoyant wood which they used to make floats for fishing lines, nets and marker buoys. Views from from the summit give a 360 degree view of Auckland, stretching as far as the eye can see.  This walk takes you from the lower carpark up to the summit, passing many midden pits and terraces on your way.  Once at the top, check out the views of the Waitemata harbour, the CBD, west towards the Waitakere Ranges, and south towards the Manukau harbour.
