Auckland Museum
Skywalk image

Auckland is New Zealand’s gateway and economic hub and the university venue occupies a prominent position in the heart of the city. With a population of 1.5 million it is easy to get around and its global reputation as the 'City of Sails' means you’re never far from a summer’s day at the beach. Enjoy a ferry ride from downtown to one of the many islands in the Hauraki Gulf, offering bushwalking, rural escapes, arts, sun, sand, and even wineries. Head to the fringes of the city to Piha, Karekare, Muriwai and Bethells beaches – some of the best in all of New Zealand.
