The city of Auckland is New Zealand’s biggest city and is surrounded by a great abundance of natural beauty. It hosts a collection of picturesque landscapes, tranquil coastlines, and other facets of nature that’s sure to take your breath away – so consider packing your bags for the best trip yet.
Auckland Botanic Gardens
Here, you can discover a myriad collection of fascinating plants and flowers. Being a reasonable distance from any Auckland city hotel, it’s a sprawling 158 acres of natural goodness. There’s a palm garden, an African plants section, and a shady native forest all for your viewing here.
Great Barrier Island
This island is the definition of disconnected – a place where technology is actively discouraged to preserve nature as much as possible, you could call this attraction a utopia of sorts, untapped nature at its most beautiful. Remaining untouched by modern era to this day, it’s a great reminder of the scenery that nature provides.
This inner-city park is slightly far off from natural, but still provides a plethora of landscapes to see, along with cultural attractions to boot. With the Auckland Museum in close range, the park is comfortably put at the centre of the city, making it an easy trip from such residences as the Avani Auckland Metropolis Residences to suit any itinerary and make a few memories with loved ones.
This spot is a great place to take in a full view of Auckland – although it’ll take some effort to get there. It’s worth it to see the views, however, as the volcano makes for a great climb and a great story to tell. It’s truly a humbling sight, so make sure to load up your camera for a few pictures of a sight to see once in a lifetime.
