Auckland City Sights and Kelly Tarlton's Aquarium
More than just a city, Auckland is a whole region full of things to see and do. Experience some of the history, culture and scenic highlights on this half-day tour, followed by a trip to the famed Kelly Tarlton’s SeaLife Aquarium. Leaving at 9:45, the tour takes you along famous Queen Street, edgy ‘K’ Road, fashionable Ponsonby, boutique Parnell (where you will briefly stop) as well as the iconic Harbour Bridge & Viaduct Harbour with its revitalised Silo Park. You’ll also visit the Domain, the 75 hectare historic park home to the Auckland War Memorial Museum. Just above Mission Bay is one of the scenic highlights: Michael Joseph Savage Memorial Park which offers stunning views over the picturesque Eastern Bays, Auckland City and the Waitemata Harbour.
On the way back you’ll stop in at Kelly Tarlton’s, an a magical underwater experience you’ll never forget. Come face to face with New Zealand’s rich marine life, including sharks, sea horses, stingrays and other incredible creatures as you walk through the underwater viewing tunnel. The Antarctic Ice Adventure is home to NZ’s only colony of Antarctic penguins, giving you the rare opportunity to see these magnificent birds up close in their icy domain. The majestic King Penguins and the super-fast Gentoo penguins share the freezing environment. And a walk-through replica of Captain Scott’s Antarctic Hut offers a glimpse of what it was like to live 100 years ago in the coldest place on earth.
