Day Trips in Auckland (city)

Edit This
On a day trip, you should not miss the soaring peak of Aoraki/Mt Cook, New Zealand's highest mountain; and the near-perfect volcanic cone of Mt Taranaki. Some historic places like Waitangi, where the Treaty of Waitangi was signed in 1840 joining British and Maori as one nation, are significant culturally to the nation as a whole. A cornerstone of New Zealand society, every year Waitangi Day celebrations take place here.

An other way to spend a day out of the city is in or on the water that surrounds this interesting city. A trip to Waiheke island just 30 mins from downtown Auckland by ferry and you'll find a true island experience with great beaches, food and even wineries.
