X*%$ Luggages & Churches

by Reikoinkona

Aloha, from VT's newest member. I'm very impressed with this forum, had to become a member.
We are taking a cruise from Auckland, arriving at 6:30am and leaving around 6 pm. Your replies to the similar question gave us good idea what we can do. Thank you for that. However, I have a couple of questions. Since we arrive on Easter Sunday. we'd like to visit Anglican church in CBD if possible. Does anyone recommend any particular church? Also, any idea what to do with our @#%#luggages?

As Parnell, an easy walk or short bus trip from the CBD, is my favourite suburb of Auckland I recommend to visit Holy Trinity Cathedral. This church has historic significance, and on the same grounds is beautiful St. Mary's Church. Holy Trinity is THE Anglican church in AKL. For example, the funeral service for Sir Edmund Hillary has taken place there.

You can store luggage at all i-sites (Visitor Information Centres) in Auckland. The luggage is stored in a room (no lockers).

There are two sites in the CBD, best the one at Sky City because it opens at 8am already. Another one at Princes Wharf at 9am on Sunday.

Thank you (Mahalo), Kakapo2, for your reply. Your answer is worth more than 3 hours of searching the Net, including NZ's official site, .govt. We now plan to visit the Holy Trinity Church as you recommended. Best, Reiko

Re: X*%$ Luggages & Churches

It is rather hopeless to search the net for luggage storage. I have no idea why the Visitor Information Centres (nearly anywhere in the world) do not clearly indicate on their websites where such places are located, as outside the airports it has become so difficult to find storage places since they are considered as possible terrorist targets. In former times nearly every railway station in the world had lockers and/or left luggage facilities. I only found out about Auckland by calling the information centre... ;-)

Anyway, happy travels, enjoy your cruise, the church and Parnell :-)

Thank you, Kakapo2, for your information. We went from Airport to Sky Tower right away. Sky Tower Hotel's bellboy has taken our luggage for safekeeping which was helpful. We had great time in Auckland, thanks to you. Our cruise was just magical, thanks to Celebrity.

Wonderful! And thank you for your feedback. It is always good to know if the advice was helpful.

Travel Tips for Auckland

Monteith's Brews

by ATXtraveler

When you are in Auckland, you should do as the Aucklanders do.... when it comes to drinking the local brew, that would be Monteith's. I enjoy taking a sip of the local trade to see which ones are the best, and I am also lucky enough not to drink beer often enough that I really can tell the difference between different brews... and I will tell you this one was tasty!

I especially enjoyed the Black brand from Monteiths, which is a little smoother than a stout, but still has a very rich taste! Definitely check out the other beers, as they often come out with a seasonal range which you will only get while you are there.

Mount Wellington

by vtveen

Mt. Wellington is situated in the Mt. Wellington Domain. It is one of Aucklands volcano’s, but not so ‘overcrowded’ with tourists and guided tours.

To reach the top and lookout you have to walk a couple of hundred metres, but your reward is a splendid view over the city and the Hauraki Gulf with the islands. Specially Rangitoto and Waiheke are rather close to Mount Wellington.

Queens Arcade

by keeweechic

Queens Arcade is down the bottom end of Queen Street and runs through from Customs Street through to Queen Street. All the remodelling over the years has still managed to maintain the old world Victorian charm but has really developed the choice of shopping. There are specialist boutiques, antiques, coffee bars, china, leather and deerskin products and Marbecks, a long established family store.

A meal with a view

by grets about 360º Revolving Restaurant

The taxi takes us all round the back streets and through the red light district. When we get there it all seems deserted - no people, no signs, nothing, just a modern building with space for upmarket shops, but totally empty. Almost eerie. We have to travel down an escalator to go up in the lift. I am beginning to wonder if we are in the right place, but when we get out of the lift all is revealed. The buffet is really nice, with something for everyone: a large selection of seafood, curry and roasts, salads etc. Desserts to my liking including a self service soft ice cream machine. They even serve cider here. The view are pretty good too.

Smart service at this cafe.

by worldkiwi about Mecca Cafe - Devonport.

Mecca Cafe is located on Victoria Street in Devonport, in the Esplanade Hotel building. This is a good place to get a coffee before beginning a walking tour of this historic part of Auckland. Service is very quick and professional.
