Day 1 – Auckland

Tip number 1 with campervans, if you have a late flight it may be cheaper to spend the night at a close motel/hotel and pick up the camper the next morning.  Our flight was delayed which meant we were unable to pick up the camper till the next day, so we lost one day`s payment.

Auckland, the city of sails has much to offer.  We enjoyed some shopping at one of the Westfield shopping centres, with the exchange rate the Aussie dollar goes a lot further.  Take a drive through the CBD and explore the viaduct , with over 20 restaurants and cafes to choose from it is a great place to sit back and relax and watch the world go by.  Take a walk up the Sky Tower, be  a dare devil and do the bungy jump or enjoy a meal in the rotating restaurant, a 360 degree view of the city.  A great place to get your bearings and decide what to do next.  We also recommend taking a ferry across the harbour to Davenport on the North Shore.  Stroll along the many beaches and discover the colonial architecture this quaint village offers.  A day trip to Rangitoto or Waiheke Island also offer a range of experiences for the New Zealand visitor.
