Auckland is lucky enough to have a broad choice of shopping destinations and with that the classic Auckland weather, we’ve included some great indoor shopping malls.
LynnMall was first opened in 1963 and was titled the first American style shopping centre in New Zealand. It’s been upgraded since the 60s though and offers a huge range of shops, grocery stores and a food court.
2. Sylvia Park
In second place we have the biggest Mall in New Zealand, featuring the most diverse range of stores. We love the vast choice of restaurants and bars, as well as the entertainment offering of the epic film multiplex. Also, unlike other malls, the architects of Sylvia Park wanted to create a pleasant ambience to shop in, and so they did with beautifully designed garden areas and water features.
