Many of Auckland’s key attractions can be found within easy reach of Onehunga, so it is a smart choice as a place to base yourself during your visit. The Dressmart Outlet Shopping Centre and Stardome Observatory are just two of the popular sights here, adored by locals and visitors alike. If time permits, be sure to also visit the One Tree Hill Domain and Acacia Cottage.
Travelers come from near and far to see Mt. Eden, one of the most photographed spots in the country. It is only 2 miles (3 kilometers) from the middle on the city.
If the sun is shining, follow the locals and head outside to the nearby green spaces. The conservation parks such as Mount Mangere, allow visitors to see the birds, trees and plants that flourish in the region. When the weather’s fine, pay a visit to Cornwall Park, a place where locals come to escape the crowds.
Watch much-loved sporting heroes, the Warriors, do battle in the nearby Mt. Smart Stadium. On weekends the stadium becomes a sea of red, white and black, as rugby league fans flock together to support their beloved team.
Visitors to Auckland have plenty of accommodation options to choose from, but if you'd prefer a room in the vicinity of Onehunga, the Airport Harbour View Motel is worth checking out.
