    Car Rental Auckland

    Auckland Car HireAuckland is the most populous, and also the largest in size, of all the cities in New Zealand. Home to 1.4 million people, this exciting metropolitan centre has much to offer for those on holiday. Located in the northeastern region of the country, Auckland lies between the Hauraki Gulf and the Pacific Ocean. This makes it one of the only cities in the world to have harbours on two separate bodies of water, which is part of how it earned the nickname City of Sails. Auckland is a wonderful city with friendly people and plenty to do during your holiday.

    Auckland is close to a number of incredible natural sites for you to explore while you are on holiday there. Make sure you pay a visit to Mount Eden. Located 5 kilometres from the city centre, this dormant volcano is the highest mountain in the Auckland region. Towering 196 metres above sea level, the scenic overlooks from the top of the mountain provide unparalleled views of the city and the countryside stretched out below. The crater of the volcano is also particularly incredible to behold and is a sloping bowl that runs down 50 metres to grassy fields. You can drive part way up the side of Mount Eden, and then take an enjoyable hike to the summit.

    During your time in Auckland, be sure to go to Sky Tower. The tower is 328 metres high, making it the tallest free-standing structure in the Southern Hemisphere. A prominent part of the city skyline, Sky Tower has become the iconic symbol of Auckland. The tower attracts roughly a half million visitors every year. Not only does it provide an amazing, scenic view of the city, but you can also have lunch in the top of the tower at a restaurant called Orbit. The restaurant is on a moving ring that makes a full rotation every hour. There are also observation decks in the tower, sections of which have glass floors for a truly exhilarating experience.
