Although Auckland doesn’t have extremes of temperature, it’s best to cover your bases. In summer a jacket and sweater should be included in your luggage should the weather turn cooler or you visit higher altitudes. Whatever the season, include a light rainproof jacket or coat just in case. If visiting between May and September, pack warm winter garments and layer your clothing, and bring your scarves, hats and gloves.
Check out Auckland’s public transport for local buses, ferries and trains. Ask us to find out more about car rentals, airport transfers, helicopter charters and other transport options.
