Win a trip to New Zealand!

Here’s your chance to win a three-night holiday for two in Auckland with flights included.

There are so many great places to visit in New Zealand but one destination on the rise internationally is Auckland.

The New York Times listed the City of Sails as one of the top places to go in 2024 and it’s just a three-hour flight away from Sydney, Melbourne and Brisbane.

Auckland offers a wealth of incredible experiences and opportunities that go beyond its picturesque landscape and friendly locals.

Travellers can enjoy its thriving arts and culture scene, family-friendly adventures, health and wellness retreats and insider foodie spots.

While it may be New Zealand’s largest city with a thriving urban scene, the unique beauty of the region is its blend of Māori identity, nature and cultural diversity, giving visitors the best of both worlds.

Just a 30-minute drive from the CBD, travellers can find themselves among 16,000 hectares of native rainforest and coastline in Waitakere.

Heading in the other direction via a 40-minute ferry ride from downtown Auckland, visitors will land on the Waiheke Islands to be met with world-class vineyards and stunning beaches.

Avani Auckland Metropolis Residences

Combining the great outdoors with eclectic dining, cultural activities and family-friendly fun, Auckland is the perfect holiday destination and the Avani Auckland Metropolis Residences is right in the heart of the action.

Enjoying a prime downtown location in the centre of the city’s vibrant shopping district and opposite popular Albert Park, Auckland’s Avani is in the city’s tallest residential building, taking the meaning of ‘the sky’s the limit’ to new heights.

The wow factor starts the moment you enter the lobby, a majestic century-old courthouse which has been transformed for today’s traveller with facilities including a well-equipped gym with guided workout routines, indoor heated pool, indoor and outdoor spas, and a sauna to soothe weary muscles after a day’s exploring Auckland’s cosmopolitan entertainment, eateries and attractions.

Rising from the historic lobby to the contemporary accommodation above, guests can choose from one- and two-bedroom suites with sweeping park or harbour views and separate living spaces, ensuring everyone has plenty of space to spread out and chill out.

Each suite also has laundry facilities and a fully equipped kitchen so guests can bring home a basket of goodies from the City Farmers’ Market – pastries, artisan bread and cheeses, French crepes – and tuck into a gourmet feast in the comfort of their suite.

Anyone travelling with kids in tow knows that happy kids mean happy parents and Avani has the young ones covered with baby cots, child-friendly cutlery and crockery, and a range of free kids’ movie and TV channels to choose from.

Fortunately, the hotel is situated a hop, skip and jump from family-friendly attractions including Albert Park, the Auckland Art Gallery, which is home to a vast collection of Maori and Pacific works, and the Auckland Zoo, a guaranteed hit with kids keen to get up close and personal with a kiwi, discover the new High Canopy Habitat, or ooh and aah over a baby orangutan.

Also nearby, the iconic Auckland Sky Tower is New Zealand’s tallest man-made structure, with panoramic 360-degree views for kilometres.

A prime spot for a celebratory dinner, a spot of sky-high yoga, or photography fans, it’s a must for any Auckland itinerary.

Travellers keen to explore the city’s nightlife can stroll to the Aotea Centre to catch a show, or sample the lively nightlife and restaurant scene at Viaduct Harbour, conveniently located close to the hotel.
