You won't find too many things more memorable than a quality wine. Sample some of the region's finest at the Artisan Wine and the Stonyridge. Once you've caught the wine bug, also think about the Babich Wines or the Stonyridge.

When you're ready to challenge the blackjack dealer, make your way over to the SkyCity Casino or the Sky City Casino.

Need some time away from the stresses of city life? Head on over to Goat Island and Mount Victoria. Lovers of nature will also enjoy Kawau Island and Waitakere Ranges.

Take ship for a journey through this region's marine history at the New Zealand National Maritime Museum. Sea-sprayed adventures don't have to stop there. More intriguing tales and fragments of old vessels await at the Royal New Zealand Navy Museum and the Voyager Maritime Museum.

You don't have to be a science nerd to admire the scientific contraptions and models at Stardome Observatory.

A haven for art connoisseurs, this area boasts an impressive range of gallery spaces in which amateur and professional artists can exhibit their wares. Immerse yourself in the creative atmosphere at the Artspace and the Auckland Art Gallery. If you can fit them in, the John Leech Gallery and the Oedipus Rex Gallery are also well worth checking out.

The Devonport Museum will provide you with a refreshing look at our long and rich past. In addition to that, you just might like to take a look at the items on display at the Warkworth and District Museum and the Howick Historical Village.

Auckland Town Hall and Government House are certainly worth looking into, even if you're not that into history. You might also like to take a few photos at Kinder House and Old Government House.

Observe the water flowing under Grafton Bridge, a remarkable feat of civil engineering.

Experience the region's spiritual side and take in the peaceful atmosphere at St. Patrick's Cathedral and St. Paul's Church. All Saints Anglican Church and St Mary's Cathedral are also intriguing sacred sites.

Auckland's most prominent tourist sights sometimes overshadow its less renowned, yet equally rewarding activities. Some good options are Half Moon Bay Marina and Snowplanet. If you can fit it in, also think about visiting the Artstation or the University of Auckland Library.
