The largest and most populous city in New Zealand, Auckland combines a rich history and thriving contemporary culture in an abundance of museums, art galleries, and performance venues.
Auckland is known for nature, museums, and nightlife. Your plan includes some of its best attractions: see the interesting displays at Auckland Museum, shop like a local with Devonport, take in panoramic vistas at SkyTower, and get to know the resident critters at Auckland Zoo.

Perth, Australia to Auckland is an approximately 10- hour flight. Traveling from Perth to Auckland, you'll lose 4 hours due to the time zone difference. When traveling from Perth in January, plan for much colder days and about the same nights in Auckland: temperatures range from 22°C by day to 22°C at night.
