Where better to set the kids loose than at Rainbow's End Theme Park? You'll find all of the traditional and best rides here so you can be sure that a day bouncing around in this giant playground will put a smile on their faces.
From a day of action, slow the pace right down and enjoy a day at Auckland's Zoo. It is here you'll find all of your zoo favorites including giraffes, elephants and orangutans as well as New Zealand's unique natives such as the elusive Kiwi and Tuatura.
For a great day of nature and photography, take a ride on the Rainforest Express. On the train you'll chug through the Waitakere Ranges, admiring the lush forest; ancient and still thriving. These ranges are only 40 minutes outside of the city so whilst there, make the most of this beautiful place and visit the majestic waterfalls. Take a dip in the crystal water, pack a picnic or even camp out overnight. Waitakere is a real highlight within Auckland.
