Auckland is the biggest city in New Zealand, and home to more people than the whole of the South Island put together.
Silvery skyscrapers and shopping malls, world-class restaurants and coffee shops, Neoclassical art galleries and museums, Victorian parkland – it’s an impressive set-up for a city that’s not actually the capital of New Zealand.
Best of all, Auckland is just a 3.5-hour direct flight away from Melbourne. You can take your pick of airlines, too.
Around 3 hours 35 minutes direct. There are so many direct flights that it’s usually not worth looking at the longer flights with stopovers.
All the usual suspects – Jetstar Airways, New Zealand Air, Virgin Australia, Qantas Airways and Emirates.
Up to 10 direct flights from Melbourne to Auckland take off a day. You could also choose from an extra 70 or so longer and more expensive indirect flights.
Melbourne (Tullamarine) Airport and Auckland Airport.
Late evening and early morning flights are usually the cheapest.
Auckland sits on the North Island of New Zealand, balanced between two wide, island-studded bays.
Want to get stuck into the views straightaway? Head for the Sky Tower, where you can eat dinner, sip a cocktail or bungee jump with a bird’s eye view of the city.
Alternatively, bungee jump from the kilometre-long Auckland Harbour Bridge, or pay your respects at the towering Maori memorial at One Tree Hill.
Of course, this is New Zealand, so the dramatic scenery is never far away. Volcanic islands and waterfalls rise up just beyond the city limits.
