High Street Vacations
To feel the real pulse of Auckland, step out and explore nearby areas such as Auckland, Newmarket, and Ponsonby.
Auckland is celebrated throughout the world as home to Mt. Eden. It is just 2 miles (3 kilometers) from the middle of town.
High Street has plenty of museums, exhibits and show venues nearby that make great places to visit. In particular, you should make sure you check out Artspace, the Auckland War Memorial Museum and Artstation. The area is a great place for those who love art. Visit the Auckland Art Gallery, the John Leech Gallery and the Oedipus Rex Gallery. See some of the thrilling live performances at Aotea Centre, the New Zealand Film Archive and the Auckland Civic Theatre.
If the sun is shining head outside and make the most of the nearby parks and reserves. Join in a ball game, pull out your sketch pad, or just relax in the shade at Victoria Park, Myers Park and Western Park.
Some of Auckland's popular sights are in and around the High Street area, such as the St. Patrick's Cathedral, Sky Tower and Wintergarden. Whatever your background or beliefs, serenity and calm awaits at sacred places like the St. Paul's Church, the All Saints Anglican Church and the St Andrew's First Presbysterian Church. Peer back through the mists of time by checking out nearby heritage sites, such as Grafton Gate.
Go to the Auckland Fish Market, the Queen Street Shopping District and the Westfield Downtown Shopping Centre to scratch that shopping itch.
Finding somewhere suitable to base yourself within High Street couldn’t be easier. The Rendezvous Grand Hotel Auckland, the Barclay Suites Auckland and the BEST WESTERN President Hotel Auckland are just three of the most popular accommodation options here.
