New Zealand maps, directions and traffic

Plan your journey to make getting there easier – avoid traffic congestion, lower the stress and time you spend in traffic and reduce your driving costs.

AA Maps online

Head to AA Maps, New Zealand's most comprehensive mapping website, before you set out on the road. The AA Maps website will help you plan your trip and reach your destination faster.

Find places, businesses and amenities

You can search for a New Zealand address or within a 5km radius of a location for cafes, banks and chemists.  Stadiums and information on all of the road closures, public restrictions, disability drop-off zones, official parking areas and walking access to the stadiums are also now available.


Search for directions to your destination. You can add in extra stops along the way if you need to and print the turn-by-turn driving instructions before you leave.


Check for the latest AA real-time traffic information. You’ll see major or minor incidents and road works affecting the state highways. AA Roadwatch collects, verifies and consolidates information about accidents, road works and other conditions to produce quality live information on New Zealand's motorways, highways, main roads and major routes 24/7.

AA Traffic also provides live domestic and international flight arrival and departure updates for Auckland and Christchurch International Airports as well as Interislander ferry schedules.
