Directions, Transport and Travel To and From Auckland University
(Auckland, New Zealand)

Auckland is well served by an international airport, railway lines, and motorway systems. It is easily accessible from neighbouring cities and towns such as Hamilton and New Plymouth, and has well-market stations and roads for visitors.

Travel by Air

Almost all visitors to Auckland arrive by air, given New Zealand's remote location. The Auckland International Airport serves most flights from within New Zealand, Australia, and the Pacific, as well as flights from the United States west coast, London, Frankfurt, and much of Asia. The airport is 21 km / 13 miles from the Auckland proper, and the Downtown Airline Terminal provides shuttles to and from the airport to the city centre.

Car Hire and Road Travel

You're better off renting a boat with so much water about! Non-the-less there are numerous attractions if you are willing to venture slightly farther, and New Zealand's natural beauty is impossible to beat.

The major car rental companies can be found in Auckland so you always have the option to secure a vehicle once you arrive. However, we recommend you pre-book car hire online as there is one established service offering the best hire prices from a number of companies including Alamo, Sixt and Thrifty.
