Those who wish for an authentic experience Down Under will surely enjoy their time in New Zealand's largest city, which is home to more than just sophisticated architecture and seafaring. Although there's a wide variety of things to do in this area, the city is known best for its port. It is one of the only cities in the world that has different harbors on two separate major bodies of water - the Waitemata Harbour and the Pacific Ocean. This significant commercial presence makes New Zealand's prized city famous when it comes to athletics.
Auckland has several venues for sports, including Eden Park, the North Harbour Stadium, Mt. Smart Stadium, ASB Tennis Centre, Vector Arena, Trusts Stadium and the North Shore Events Centre. These locations feature practically every New Zealand sport under the sun, including rugby, soccer, cricket, netball, tennis, badminton, swimming, soccer and even indoor basketball. This city has been home to major athletic events like the 2007 Netball World Championships, the Heineken Open (tennis) and the ASB Classic. Some of the most popular teams in the area include the Blues (Super Rugby), the Aces (cricket), FC (football) and three ITM Cup rugby teams - Auckland, North Harbour and Counties Manukau. Every year, the city is host to major sporting events like the Auckland Harbour Crossing Swim and the Auckland Marathon.
Those who would rather indulge in leisurely activities can enjoy casual sea life that the area is best known for. The harbor contains numerous charters and yachts that visitors can take advantage of. The Viaduct Basin, near the harbor area, has many cafes, restaurants and clubs that make Auckland extremely convenient for anyone who wants to experience some eccentric nightlife. Some of the best spots for shoppers are High Street, Queen Street, Ponsonby Road, Karangahape Road and Newmarket.
Those who love nothing more than a few good tunes can sample the international music that also helps put Auckland on the map. Visitors may opt to see the Auckland Philharmonia Orchestra, which performs its own series of concerts with the accompaniment of opera, ballet and guest artists, or the Auckland Art Gallery, which hosts many of the country's most esteemed visual artists.
Whether visitors wish to explore the various parks and recreational areas, travel on the open seas or get a taste of South Pacific culture, Auckland has more to offer than one can possibly imagine.
