Auckland - Region - Accessible/Easy Access Accommodation & Activities

Auckland's vast harbour, quiet islands and vibrant cityscape offer an exciting mix of urban, water and wildlife activities. And most of the popular activities are to varying degrees accessible. Getting out on the harbour on ferries, harbour cruises and sailing is entirely possible for most people; man-made attractions such as the museum, planetarium and the zoo have all been designed with access in mind, while the wilder places like the west coast are a little more difficult, but not so much that you can't go there and see what these special places are like.

Have a look at the attractions listed for the different parts of Auckland to get some more ideas, and look for I-Centres to get information about absolutely everything.
