Auckland Things to Do

There are a lot of things to do in Auckland that are free and others you have to pay for. If you want to experience some arts and culture, heritage and history, beaches, Auckland and region parks and reserves, walk around the botanical gardens, experience local farmers’ markets, have a look at the harbours, or experience some nature spaces in and around the City you can find all those things for free.
