Bay of Islands or beaches

by auztrav

Hi,

I have been to Phuket and rottnest island and love the white beaches abd the cleap blue waters.....will i be dissappointed on a day trip or overnight trip to bay of islands?

I am not into water sports etc, just like the view.....

Is there anywhere else in Auckland or Christchurch areas like that?

Overnight trip would be better as there is some distance involved. The bay of islands is very scenic as to is the journey there. Did a combined boat (tour of the isdlands and hole in the rock) and 4wd (got to parts that are hard to get to) day tour which was very good.

The beaches in NZ are not as romantic as in Thailand, as we have no leaning palm trees... Most beaches are much wilder.

And the beaches are very different. Golden beaches in ... guess... Golden Bay (Abel Tasman National Park), grey beaches on the West Coast, fine sandy and rough rocky beaches, also white beaches...

From Auckland you have nice beaches in Takapuna, and on Waiheke Island.

In Christchurch we have a 25 km long white sandy beach from New Brighton to the river mouth of the Waimakariri with sand dunes but no trees, and smaller beaches like Taylor's Mistake, Sumner and around Lyttelton Harbour. Lonesome white beaches and turquoise blue waters on Banks Peninsula, especially Le Bons Bay and Okains Bay. But you will need a car to reach these whereas you can get to New Brighton and Sumner by bus.

One word: Coromandel - this is the cost line just down from Auckland (2 hours away). Cooks Beach, Whangapoa, Whangamata but the best most secluded beach is Onemana. There are tours around the area and it is fairly laid back. You'll love it!!

Yes, if you have a chance to get to the Coromandel - this really is wonderful, especially in summer when the pohutukawas are in bloom. Then the white beaches, especially on the west coast, are seamed by a red ribbon of the red blossoms. Forget when you will be in NZ... They have started to bloom already, even in my garden in Christchurch - so they are further advanced up there in the north. Also check out the Coromandel Pohutukawa Festival.

Travel Tips for Auckland

Half Moon Bay Marina

by keeweechic

Half Moon Bay is on the eastern side of Auckland. The marina sits in the Tamaki River and has a 35 ton travelift with full service to all types of marine craft. There is a fishing and dive shop close by as well as a chandlery store. Also near at hand are restaurants, a supermarket, motel and pharmacy.

The Central Lawn

by keeweechic

On the edge of the large Central Lawn area is the Potter Children’s Garden which is designed with the little ones in mind. There is a maze and an interactive walled garden with stories of the puriri tree and native wood pigeon. On the other side of the lawn is the Discovery centre, the rose garden and an area of beautiful camellias from both New Zealand and Japan and China.

Location : Botanic Gardens, Hill Road, Manurewa

Devonport Ferry

by mark88

The Devonport Ferry is the cheapest way to get aboard a boat and see the Auckland Harbour. The 10 minute ride leaves from the bottom of Queen St and takes you to beautiful Devonport, a quaint town which still retains some of the charm of Aucklands early days. A short walk to either Mt Victoria or North Head will provide spectacular views of the city and the Hauraki Gulf. Nearby Cheltnam beach also offers the chance of safe family swimming at high tide.

Cost NZ$8 return.

Lone Star

by fishandchips about Lone Star

The Lone Star (US state of Texas) is one of a chain of restaurants of the same name and this one is in Newmarket near to central Auckland. The others that I have been to are in Queenstown, Christchurch and Wellington. All about the same.

It's just off the main drag so not too hard to get a car park especially with a parking building ($4 per hour) across the road. I went here with my niece's and nephew and they all seemed to have a great time.

The meals used to be huge but they don't appear to be so big these days. Not that it's a bad thing given the amoutn fo food you can eat here. Main meals are priced at approx $33 so about average and there is a good kids menu.

The kids (one is 5 and another is 7) got colouring in gear with lots of pencils (not too many arguments over the colours) and were well looked after by the young and keen waitresses. We got some bread (warm loaves with garlic butter) and potatoe wedges to start. For the mains I had the Blackfoot Fish (2 fillets) and it was ok. Came with about a dozen spuds!!

The little ones had fish & chips and steak & chips and they all said that they loved their food. The small kids menus included a drink, main and ice cream so good value for around $11

A great view of Auckland

by HarShe

At 328 metres Sky Tower is the tallest tower in the Southern Hemisphere, offering breath-taking views for more than 80 kilometres in every direction.

Great views, bungy jumping, fine dining are a few things to do at the tower. Check out the website for details
