Best Attractions in Auckland West
Local Recommendations from our My Guide Auckland team
The sheer volume of Auckland Attractions means you'll never be short of something to do. Attractions in Auckland cover the gamut of gentle, family fun, to thrill-seeking adrenalin danger.
Auckland Attractions don't have to be limited to sedate, protective environments like parks and playgrounds. There's the popular theme park of Rainbow's End to keep everyone amused, plus numerous wildlife parks, including the family favourite Auckland Zoo. MOTAT offers a fun and interactive experience of New Zealand's transport history, while Snowplanet is a chance to hit indoor ski slopes all year round. The SkyTower is one of the city's biggest draws, where you can see the city 192 metres high above the ground. Kids can even do the SkyWalk at the top of the SkyTower. Or, the whole family can head over to do the Harbour Bridge Walk and other challenging activities including a bungy jump. There are also loads of educational museums and galleries, plus a planetarium. A hop on a tourist bus is a great way to find your bearings, visit many of the attractions and plan the rest of your trip
