Auckland Visitor’s Guide

Auckland CityWelcome to Auckland!

Wherever you stay in this ‘City of Sails’, you’re never far from breathtaking scenery, beautiful beaches, invigorating walks, great shopping and exciting nightlife. As a Jewish traveller, we understanding it can often be difficult finding Kosher food or ‘Shabbat-friendly’ Accommodation in a foreign city. If you are looking for a place to stay, we recommend, for backpackers, the YMCA Hostel and, for luxury accommodation, the Amora Hotel. Both are situated on Greys Avenue only a couple of meters from the Greys Ave Deli and Synagogue. The staff at the Amora Hotel have also been trained to meet the requirements of Shomer Shabbat guests.

During your stay in Auckland, we hope you get a chance to visit our Deli and attend a service at the Synagogue (click here for service times this month).

Unfortunately, at this stage, we are unable to provide meals or accommodation in private homes as the Religious Community is still relatively small. As we continue to grow, we will undoubtedly be able to offer such hospitality in the future. In the meantime, you can contact the Greys Avenue Deli for Kosher Shabbat catering. If you are visiting, you may wish to download our Kosher Kiwi Visitors Guide (its only 6 pages).

If you have any further queries or concerns about your visit, please don’t hesitate to contact us.

We hope you enjoy your visit to Auckland!
