Winter is here but that doesn’t mean you have to let the cold-weather blues get you down. Here are 13 things you can do in Auckland no matter how grim it is outside.

1. Plan an art gallery road trip

Auckland Art Gallery is just one of many amazing places to see art around the region. There’s also Fresh Gallery ŌtaraTe Uru Waitākere Contemporary Gallery in Titirangi, Māngere Arts Centre – Ngā Tohu o UenukuDepot Artspace in Devonport, Mairangi Arts CentreStudio One Toi Tū in Ponsonby, Nathan Homestead in Manurewa, Uxbridge Arts Centre in Howick and many more! See how many you can visit in a day (or a week).

2. Swim when you’re winning

Auckland Council runs pools and leisure centres across the region. They’re perfect for beginners, as well as serious swimmers, and they’re a great place to take the tamariki (kids) on a rainy day. Find out more at Auckland Council Pools and Leisure.

3. Win free stuff!

Check out our competitions and giveaways page and you might get lucky. We have free tickets to shows, plays, musicals, concerts, sports matches and more.

4. Voyage over the oceans (well, sort of)

Visit the New Zealand Maritime Museum – Hui Te Ananui a Tangaroa to find out how the first Pacific voyagers navigated to Aotearoa, meet some modern maritime heroes, and discover New Zealand’s seagoing history.

5. Explore our heritage collections

The Sir George Grey Collection at Auckland Central Library includes rare books, medieval manuscripts and other treasures such as a Roman Missal from 15th Century Besançon and Shakespeare's First Folio.

6. Mātakitakitia ngā whetū – Gaze at the stars

Head to Stardome Observatory at One Tree Hill Domain to tour the universe in a planetarium show or pick a clear night to stargaze with an astronomer. There’s also a great gallery space with some astronomically good exhibitions.

7. Visit the museum

Auckland Museum is perfect for a winter’s afternoon. While you’re there, wander over to the …

8. Wintergardens ... 

... and get a taste of the tropics in these magnificent climate-controlled gardens.
