Auckland's SkyTower is New Zealand’s tallest building, the views from the top are incredible, and its clear fronted lifts and glass floored observation deck will thrill young and old.

If standing atop of New Zealand’s highest building is not exciting enough, why not jump off it? When approaching Auckland’s Sky Tower you’ll hear the screams of people plunging at 85km per hour from the 328m landmark while attached to a safety wire. Those wanting a thrill but preferring to keep their feet on something solid can choose SkyWalk, a hands-free walk on the outside of the Sky Tower, 192 metres above the ground.

For an outing that will take your eyes and tastebuds to new heights, visit Orbit 360° dining for a long lunch or dinner; one of the few places you’ll ever be able to say ‘cheers’ at 194 metres. Or visit one of the many award-winning, al-fresco restaurants closer to the ground, including Huami, Masu, Depot, Federal Street Delicatessen, The Grill by Sean Connelly, Gusto at the Grand, and Bellota. Appearances by celebrity chefs are frequent and the quality of food is second to none.
