  19. Welcome to the City of Sails, or Tāmaki-makau-rau, its Māori name. Auckland hardly needs an introduction given its stunning bayside location on the North Island of New Zealand and its famous buildings and structures. No wonder it is frequently ranked among the world’s topmost livable cities.

In the CBD you’ll find the tall towers of The Pacifica, PwC, and Seascape, and to the east the imposing structure of the Auckland War Memorial Museum. The port areas downtown also received careful attention, with custom models for industrial buildings and container cranes, the Marine Rescue Center, and a diverse collection of ships and boats. The city’s terrain is dotted with dozens of ancient volcanic cones, some of which have hilltop POIs, like the obelisk on One Tree Hill (Maungakiekie), the Beacon on Mount Eden (Maungawhau), and the weather station on Victoria Hill. For helicopter pilots, the ASB Bank Centre and Auckland City Hospital have landable helipads. In addition, Mechanics Bay heliport east of the container port as well as several moored vessels in port with helipads offer landing spots. $13.63 AUD Sales tax will be calculated at checkout where applicable.
