You cannot come to Auckland without a visit up the Sky Tower. Up there in the clouds, you get to see the whole city. You can even bungee jump off it, if that is your thing! Try to pick a good day for your visit as obviously you want the best view and a clear day gives you that.
The lift up is an experience in itself as it gives you amazing views. Its glass bottom floor means you do not want to be scared of heights doing this one. When you reach the sky deck there are also glass platforms to walk on that are not for the light-hearted, and there is plenty of information about the city and the actual tower up the top, too.
If you are lucky, you can witness someone bungee jump right in front of you. The shop at the bottom is where you can pick up some souvenirs for the family back home.
Auckland’s mighty Sky Tower.
A great place for tourists to visit, and even for families with kids!
