    America'sCup Village

    America's Cup Village in Auckland...

    A fun place to eat and drink, close to downtown Auckland. See the super rich hanging out drinking their single malts and smoking fat cubanos down by the docks. This may be your one chance to rub elbows with the Larry Ellisons and Paul Allens of the world...

    Whangaparoa is at the north end of the America's Cup course. Gulf Harbour and marina is an area was developed after NZ won the America's Cup. With upwards of 1000 berths it is one of the largest in the southern hemisphere. From the Whangaparoa Peninsula, you can get great views of the Hauraki Gulf where the yachting takes place.

    Auckland - Sky City

    by keeweechic Updated Jan 23, 2003

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Sky City is said to be New Zealand's most popular entertainment and leisure destination and aptly named 'A city within a City'. Sky Tower is at 328 metres, the tallest tower in the southern hemisphere (taller than the Eiffel Tower). You can take the glass fronted elevator to an observation deck (travelling at thrilling 5 metres per second). The views of Auckland city and surrounds is breathtaking whether you see it by day or night. I think the best time is just as the light is about to fade and you watch the city transform in a fairyland. Within Sky City you will find the Casino which never closes, restaurants and bars.

    There are three levels to the observation deck at Sky Tower. On the first level you can stand over glass floors and look down at the city beneath your feet.

    There is a swimming pool is situated Muriwai Beach. It has different kinds of water slides. For a short time I became 10n years old. It was cold but sun was shining and the water is reasonable hot. Off we go…….hooooooooooo.

    Albert Park, though smaller than the Auckland Domain, is just as pretty. This is a green oasis in the heart of the city.

    Auckland is NZ's largest city and has by far the most cultural activities. The city is pretty compact and most sights are within walking distance.
