Leisure's Guide to Top Spots In AucklandLEISURE
New Zealand-based band LEISURE makes music that speaks to Auckland's relaxing and calm atmosphere. Having come together spontaneously when travelling around New Zealand's rugged West Coast, the country is of huge significance to the band. Bandmate Jaden Parkes explained to us that his tie to the island is strengthened by the fact that he was "raised in the Waitakere ranges" in Auckland, which has a "special vibe that [he's] only found on the West Coast."
In their guide, LEISURE take us through their favourite places to have a drink, to experience New Zealand's breathtaking scenery and where to find some of their favourite comfort foods (think breakfast burgers and jam donuts!). Read on to find out why exactly Auckland is "such a vibrant place to live, explore and learn from different cultures."
