What is it? The single most defining feature of the Auckland cityscape, this 328-metre tower’s looming presence can’t really be ignored. While it is a total mainstream tourist attraction, the 360-degree views are stunning, and some of the city’s best restaurants surround it.
Why go? Don’t limit your visit to the viewing platform: indulge in cheese or ice cream goodness from iconic New Zealand brand Kapiti at Sky Café on level 50, or eat at internationally renowned chef Peter Gordon’s The Sugar Club on 53. Good food and killer views can’t be beaten.
