      • About transportation and parking. Just hop off at your destination, and then hop back on later to see more. Explorers come by every 30 minutes (hourly in winter).
      • Your guide to the city: Auckland is a big, spread-out city, and the Explorer lets you get your bearings while audio commentary provides history and background on all the landmarks. 
      • The Big 14: If you have any of Auckland's top attractions on your list, relax – we cover them all, including the Sea Life Aquarium, Sky City, Mt. Eden, the zoo, Parnell Village, the Rose Gardens, Holy Trinity Cathedral, three museums, shopping, parks, and more.
      About This Auckland Tour

      Auckland Explorers cover the city from the harbor to the inland suburbs, with conveniently located stops near the attractions and landmarks you plan to see – plus restaurants, shops, galleries, and places you might not know about.

      Bastion Point: Great views over the Hauraki Gulf and Waitemata Harbor. A popular destination for kite fliers, "the Bastion" lives up to its name with the interesting remains of World War II lookout bunkers and gun emplacements.

      Kelly Tarlton's Sea Life Aquarium: One of New Zealand's top attractions, with amazing underwater viewing tunnels and spectacular habitats showcasing more than 80 different land and marine species, including the world's largest Antarctic penguin colony exhibit.

      Parnell Rose Gardens: More than 5,000 new and old rose varieties, many created by internationally celebrated breeders, make this beautiful park a daily festival of color and scent.

      Holy Trinity Cathedral: This historic Anglican church is also a center of choral music, art, and architecture, with regular cultural performances.

      Auckland War Memorial Museum: A must for visitors. Three expansive levels tell the story of New Zealand's emergence as a nation, including the loss and suffering of the World Wars, our Pacific and Maori heritage, and our uniquely isolated ecosystem. A short walk from the duck pond, natural springs, and cafe at the beautiful Winter Gardens.

      Parnell Village: New Zealand's oldest neighborhood is famed for its galleries, cafes, and boutiques.

      Civic Theater Corner: Located on Queen Street, Auckland's main thoroughfare. Stop here to visit Albert Park and the Art Gallery, with more than 15,000 works and free guided tours.

      Sky City: Home of "the biggest view in Auckland" from the famous Sky Tower, 1,076 tall. Try the SkyWalk or Sky Jump for unforgettable thrills.

      Princes Wharf: See the Auckland Harbor Bridge and Wynyard Quarter from the piers where cruise ships dock and fishing boats deliver to the fish market.

      Mt. Eden and Eden Garden: Two of the most scenic spots in the country. The Explorer lets you off about 330 yards from the 643-foot summit of a Mt. Eden, dormant volcano offering great city and harbor views. The garden is one of the best in the Southern Hemisphere.

      Westfield St. Lukes Shopping Center: Drawing more than 6 million people a year, this vast complex houses an eight-screen movie theater, a Kmart, and 160+ stores.

      Auckland Zoo: Home to the largest collection of native and exotic animals in New Zealand, set on 42 acres of lush parkland. And yes, there are kiwis.

      Museum of Transport and Technology: MOTAT takes you on an interactive journey covering 40 acres of New Zealand's transportation and technological achievements.

      Hop onto an icon

      It's the best way to see Auckland landmarks, and a city icon in its own right. In 1987, Mark Gibson and his father gutted and rebuilt an old double-decker bus and launched a route linking Sea Life, the War Memorial Museum, and Parnell Village. Auckland Explorers now cruise the streets every day of the year, making the Big 14 attractions easy to get to. If you're lucky, you may find that Mark himself is your driver – no one knows the city and its sights better.
