Averages for Auckland in January
With 32 per cent of the country’s population, the city of Auckland in New Zealand has plenty of stunning sightseeing locations, a settled and lovely climate, and some wonderful accommodation that makes visitors feel like they are at home.
Popular with locals and tourists, Auckland provides the perfect setting for some cultural festivals, along with some addictive hobbies, and the right blend of tradition and modernity.
There is no extreme weather climate, and as New Zealand is located in the Southern Hemisphere, it experiences opposites in weather to what is seen in the Northern Hemisphere.
This means that summer is at the start of the year, and winter arrives in July/August time, a period where it is meant to be warmer in the north.
The Southern Hemisphere is in the midst of its summer during the month of January, and Auckland in New Zealand is no exception. With breathtakingly beautiful scenery, loads of fun-packed activities to keep people busy and appealing weather, Auckland is a great place for a memorable holiday. Sunshine is prevalent in Auckland during this time of year, and 14 hours of daylight can be expected. Temperatures normally hover around 22 degrees Celsius, a couple of degrees above the usual January average. The weather is warm and sunny, while the sea water temperature sits at 32 Fahrenheit, as it does all year. So, it means that the temperature is very ideal for a gentle soak, rather than an endurance swim.
Accommodation wise, one of the best places to stay at all-year round is the Hotel DeBrett. This hotel is right in the heart of the city centre. Style and class are the two main aims of this carefree environment. It is the perfect location to be near the wide choice of delicious restaurants and bars of Viaduct Harbour, and is surrounded by theatres and art galleries. Also, there is nearby facilities for swimming, sailing, tennis and golf. A good alternative choice would be the SKYCITY Hotel for those who prefer sticking to a budget. This accommodation offers plenty of space, and is seriously good value for money.
Always bustling with events, Auckland is no exception in January. Top of the bill is the Auckland Seafood Festival in Halsey Wharf. Whether this event is for a regular visitor or a newcomer, the Auckland Anniversary Weekend becomes even tastier after this experience. This festival is the ultimate party when it comes to seafood, a popular pastime in New Zealand. It won’t just be the food, with a wide selection of entertainers performing, plus the chance to enjoy local beers and wines.
