New Zealand - Auckland (Chapter)
This is the Auckland chapter from Lonely Planet’s New Zealand guidebook.
It's hard to imagine a more geographically blessed city than Auckland. Its two harbours frame an isthmus punctuated by volcanic cones and surrounded by fertile farmland. Within an hour's drive of the city there are dense tracts of rainforest, thermal springs, wineries and wildlife re-serves.
- going with the flows, exploring Auckland’s fascinating volcanic field
