Local Tours

Two complimentary local area tours were designed to provide delegates with a glimpse of New Zealand’s landscape, waters, and habitat. The tours took place concurrently, so delegates were asked to select the tour option they wished to attend.

The tours were held on the afternoon of Tuesday 2 October.

Option 1 – Harbour Cruise

Cruise around the inner harbour and see why Auckland is known as the ‘City of Sails’.

Afternoon tea will be provided. A cash bar service will also be available at your own expense.

Option 2 – Aquarium

A short distance from SkyCity is Kelly Tarltons, Auckland’s iconic sea life aquarium. This is a fantastic opportunity to get up and close with marine animals, including sharks, turtles, stingrays, seahorses, fish and much, much more. It is home to one of the world’s largest – and New Zealand’s only – sub Antarctic and Antarctic penguin colony, and New Zealand’s only turtle rescue centre.

Afternoon tea will be provided.
