Auckland Tower Auckland is New Zealand's most populated city and is bustling with excitement. Kelly Tarltons aquarium is an amazing feature of the city. It offers an Antarctic encounter with King Penguins and Gentoo penguins, an adrenalin option where you can dive with sharks and an underwater world where you can watch a myriad of sea creatures in action. Adventure Jet is an action packed jet boat ride on Auckland Harbor and is very popular with tourists. The amazing sky tower is a highlight of the city with its dominance over the skyline. Cafes and restaurants abound this metropolis, where there really is, something for everyone.
