Perfectly situated between two glistening harbours and surrounded by iconic natural features, New Zealand’s most populous city is the ideal blend of urban lifestyle and geographical beauty. You can choose to start your campervan itinerary here, or spend some time getting to know the real Auckland – beyond the Sky Tower – and use some of the campsites and holiday parks around Auckland as your base.
With 1.5 million Kiwis calling Auckland home, it’s no wonder that we have an RV Super Centre here – located on the North Shore, in Albany. Pick up your motorhome from here or arrange collection with one of our local registered campervan owners.
When in Auckland, do as the locals do: make the most of the outdoor lifestyle, live it up at waterfront cafes and bars, attend a cultural festival, clamber up long extinct volcanoes for 360° views of the sprawling city, and get out on the water – whether that’s surfing, fishing, kayaking, paddleboarding, snorkelling, or simply hopping on a ferry to discover some of Auckland’s nearby islands in the Hauraki Gulf.
You’re never far from a picturesque beach in Auckland – whether its a rugged black sand beach of the west coast (Piha, Karekare, Muriwai) or the golden sands of the eastern bays (Takapuna Beach, Mission Bay, Long Bay), park up the camper and enjoy some time exploring above and below the surface of the water.
Within an hour’s drive from the central city there are forested hills, thermal springs, wineries and wildlife and marine reserves teeming with natural wonder. Head north to Matakana for fresh local produce, an artisan lifestyle and beachy days, or drive south to start your North Island motorhome or camper road trip.
