Nightlife Ideas in Auckland
Auckland has a vibrant nightlife

The biggest city in New Zealand attracts millions of visitors yearly, and for a good reason. As well as offering brilliant trips and attractions throughout the day; there are a host of things for visitors to enjoy on a night out in Auckland. This doesn’t just include hitting the vibrant bars and clubs but also less common activities that you can only experience in the country’s capital.

Whether you’re looking to get your adrenaline pumping or meet new friends; there is something for everybody in the capital, and that’s what makes it the best city in the whole country to visit.

Mt Eden

One of the most beautiful things that you can see on your trip is the sunset from Mt Eden. The location is the highest natural vantage point, and it only takes ten minutes from you to walk up to the summit. From here you can enjoy the panoramic views and admire the sheer beauty of not only Auckland but also New Zealand. If you have had an action-packed day and wanted to rest your legs, then you can instead opt to drive up to the summit to take in the views and park at Puhi Huia Road, which is a two-minute walk from the vantage point.


For those looking for their adrenaline rush then they shouldn’t look past the option of doing canyoning at night. The activity isn’t the easiest to do in the day time, so for those interested, they should be aware that the skill level of those that typically take part is pretty high. It isn’t for the faint-hearted. The activity involves swimming, hiking, abseiling and sliding and scrambling from side to side. The favoured option among tourists is the five-hour trip from Auckland to Piha in the Waitakere Ranges.

Bars and Clubs

If you’re looking to have a few relaxing drinks or dance the night away, then Auckland is the perfect city for you. The city is renowned for its excellent nightlife and covers every base in terms of interest. If you are looking to sit in a dive bar and spend hours playing on a great site for casino games, then there is something for you. While there are also an array of late-night clubs and cocktail bars for you to enjoy. Most solo travellers in the city sign up for the backpacker bar crawl; where you can meet new friends from all corners of the world.

Other Activities

The selection of activities in Auckland outweighs most of the other countries in the world. Aside from the common ways to spend your night; you can also spend the night playing paintball. Of course, getting hit in the dark is no less painful than it is in the day time, but it an enjoyable way to spend your evening shooting your friends with small pellets. There are also other options to enjoy, such as Auckland escape rooms or the city night market. The latter of which is the ideal place to get a late night snack, and it is open until midnight.
