Areas of Auckland
A stone's throw from the ocean around the busy Queen St shopping strip. You'll find the majority of accommodation as well as numerous restaurants and bars.
To the east is this laid back, sophisticated suburb, with its numerous art galleries and restaurants, a fashionable area of renovated wooden villas crammed with restaurants and boutiques.
North Shore City:
Including the suburbs of Devonport, with a pretty, villagey feel. Takapuna beachfront attracts a youthful surf crowd, while Mount Victoria, once the site of a Maori Pa, and North Head, is a former artillery battery, built in the late 1800s to defend the city from invasion. 10 min ferry ride across the Waitemata Harbour.
It is nicknamed The City of Sails. Waitemata Harbour provides a glistening backdrop to the pace of urban life and is a focal point for tourists and Aucklanders alike. Known as the America's Cup Village, the area bustles with open-air restaurants and cafes and is a great place to relax and soak up the atmosphere.
