Travel and accommodation

New Zealand is famous for its natural beauty. Built on an isthmus between two harbours, Auckland City is dotted with beaches and parks from the rugged bush clad west coast to the more gentle shores of the northern and eastern suburbs.

Hotel accomodation

The University of Auckland Business School is partnered with accommodation providers close to its City Campus and within a short walking distance. These providers offer a wide range of options whether you are staying by yourself, with a partner or with family.

There is a lot do around Auckland with many other North Island tourist destinations nearby. Most visitors to Auckland typically undertake a trip to Rotorua, which is well known for its thermal springs. Rotorua is about a three hour drive from Auckland.

Other attractions include the Bay of Islands (about a 4 hour drive away) and the Coromandel peninsula (about 2.5 hours). A trip to the Waitomo glow-worm caves (about 1.5 hours south of Auckland) is also worthwhile. In order to get the most out of these trips, we suggest at least an overnight stay.

Visit the following web pages to make the most of all that the City of Sails and beyond has to offer.

Airport transfers

A taxi from Auckland Airport to the city can be relatively expensive and costs around NZ$70 or more depending on traffic. Uber is also available in Auckland.

A cheaper option is the Airport Shuttle which is extremely convenient. There is no need to book the shuttle. Shuttles are usually waiting outside the airport and will take you to the city for NZ$35. Find out more on the Airport Shuttle website.

An even cheaper option is the SkyBus (previously the Airport Bus) which costs about NZ$20 one way. There is a bus every twenty minutes except for very early or very late in the day. Find out more on the SkyBus website.
