shopping and sightseeing

by auztrav

How do the shopping prices go compared to the aussie prices?

Are there any shiops thay sell plus size clothes?

What are the must sees in and around christchurch

Re: shopping and sightseeing

by allikat

I guess it might depend where in Aussie you are comparing to, but from what I've seen there is more choice in Aus, and so consequently prices can be better. For example, Kiwis tend to get excited about visits to places like Melbourne because of the shopping there compared to here. Yes, there are places selling plus sizes, there are specialist shops but also the mainstream shops often cater relatively well.

Christchurch must sees would include Banks Penninsula and the surrounding areas (Lyttelton, Diamond Harbour etc), the Botanic Gardens, the city centre (very compact) with the cathedral and Cathedral Square area, the shops and cafes at the Arts Centre (excellent if you can coincide a visit with one of the markets).

Re: shopping and sightseeing

by allikat

Just saw your question posted also in the Christchurch forum....if you were asking here for must sees in Auckland, then they would include the Viaduct Harbour and waterfront area, the Sky Tower, One Tree Hill and Cornwall Park (for views that easily rival those from the Sky Tower except they are free), Waiheke Island, Rangitoto and the Waitemata Harbour in general, Devonport with it's naval base and excellent cafes. Depends how long you're here for..

Travel Tips for Auckland

Skytower Sky Jump

by keeweechic

Not one jump I am likely to do. This jump is different in the respect that it is a cable-controlled base jump from Auckland’s Sky Tower. You can choose to go feet first or just glide down head first. A special suit with a full body harness is provided and you are attached to a wire cable and a descender unit. The cable drum feeds out the wire behind you as you fall at a controlled speed. As you step off the observation deck on the Sky Tower, you see a miniature red bull’s eye painted on a raised platform 192 metres below. You then fall at about 60kph and as you approach the ground, decelerate until you finally touch down on the lower platform. All in all the jump/fall lasts about 20 seconds.

The Sky Jump is supposed to be the highest public tower-based jump in the world. It is 4 times higher than the Taupo Bungy that I did.

Disabled Access

by keeweechic

If you are disabled or not able to walk around the gardens, you can ask at the visitors desk for access to drive around the loop road of the gardens. In doing this you can stop your car at any time (pulled over to the side) and be able to enjoy much of the gardens at leisure. This can only be don eon week days. You can also borrow a wheelchair for use at the gardens. They only have 3 so if you go at a busy time you would be busy to pre-book it. A deposit is required but this will be returned when the chair is taken back

Location : Botanic Gardens, Hill Road, Manurewa

Free Rickshaw Rides!!!!

by allikat

These modern rickshaws offer free rides around downtown Auckland and the Viaduct Basin area. The company is called JafaCabs and at first I assumed that they made their money from advertisements placed on the back of the rickshaw, but that doesn't seem to be the case. Who cares? This is a fun way to see this part of central Auckland, so why not give it a go?

A revolutionary restaurant!!!

by allikat about Orbit Restaurant

The Orbit Restauarant has great views....over all of Auckland and beyond, in fact, as it is situated at the top of Aucklands Sky Tower, and the restaurant itself slowly revolves.
The evening starts with the elevator ride, zooming up from the basement of the tower past glass panels. Spend some time at the observation deck and work up an appetite by daring each other to walk across the glass panels in the floor!
I would recommend you book your table before sunset, so that you can enjoy the colours in the sky, and watch the cities lights come alive as the light fades. I had a starter of smoked Akaroa salmon with preserved lemons, and a main course of crisp roasted pork with garlic and rosemary potatoes. The restaurant offers lots of New Zealand produce, but the menu is very international, which is an accurate reflection of NZ cuisine.
Orbit Restaurant is a little pricey, but the food is very good, and the location is very special, so I would say the price is worth it. Expect to pay $60/$70 NZD upwards for 3 courses with wine.

Great thing to do on a Rainy Day

by lesaandbill

It was rainy and cold when we arrived into Auckland...and I ended up visiting the museum. It was impressive and fun to learn about this country thru the museum. It was certainly a great way to spend a rainy day...
