Don't miss the Antarctic Encounter, and take advantage of online bookings to save up to 20%. Although currently closed due to flooding, the Auckland Odyssey Sensory Maze promises an exciting, family-friendly experience when it reopens. It's a great all-ages activity situated at the Sky World Entertainment Centre on Queen Street. For animal lovers, Butterfly Creek is an ideal choice. Explore the immersive attractions, get up close with meerkats, cheeky monkeys, and more, and try out the Junior Keeper program for a truly hands-on adventure. Don't forget to visit the prehistoric-themed Dinosaur Kingdom and enjoy the train ride and playground. Auckland's museums and galleries offer family-focused exhibits and interactive experiences designed to engage kids and parents alike. Check out the extensive variety of museums to find one suited to your family's interests. Finally, make time for Auckland's gorgeous parks, nature reserves, and outdoor recreational opportunities. A family excursion to one of the city's many green spaces is the perfect way to relax and create lasting memories together.

When to visit

Auckland's sub-tropical climate ensures that this dynamic city is an excellent year-round destination for families. The warm summer months between December and February are the most popular, offering ideal conditions for outdoor activities and beautiful beaches. Bear in mind, hotel rates and tourist numbers may be higher during these months, so it's wise to book ahead. During the shoulder months of March-May and September-November, the temperatures remain pleasant, and you'll likely find fewer crowds and more reasonable prices for accommodations and transportation. Winter months, June to August, remain a viable option for family visits, with the benefit of lower hotel rates and airfares. Overall, Auckland promises unforgettable experiences for families any time of the year!
