  • City Circuit Free Bus

    Auckland Transportation

    This is a fantastic free of charge service that travels around the city in a clockwise direction. It leaves every 10 minutes between 8am-6pm. Look out for the bright red buses - you cant miss them! Buses are hybrid so enviromentally friendly :-) The stops are as follows: Britomart (main transport hub in Auckland) Queen St - Vulcan Lane Queen St -...

  • Fullers Waiheke Ferry

    Waiheke Island Transportation

    Frequent ferries connect the island of Waiheke with downtown Auckland. I caught one of these ferries, operated by "Fullers", for a daytrip to the island during my visit to Auckland in March 2006. The following information is correct as at that time: Ferry times Ferries leave for Waiheke Island approximately hourly during the day from Auckland's...

  • Auckland Air Bus

    Auckland Transportation

    If you stay somewhere near Queen st. airbus stops, you can use that bus to and from airport. I bought return ticket from ticket booth, but the booth may be closed. In this situation you can buy ticket from the driver.

  • Waiheke Auto Rentals

    Waiheke Island Transportation

    WAIHEKE AUTO RENTALS are situated on the ferry wharf at Matiatia where you arrive. They offer cars, station wagons, 4WDs convertible sports cars, coaches and minivans. Plenty of options available too, from daily rate to a One day self-drive tour with maps and info supplied.


    Auckland Transportation

    The LINK is a very cheap environmentally friendly bus (satisfying the Euro5 standards) that will lead you from the city centre to all the main touristic actractions in Auckland for 1.60NZ$! I definitely do not suggest driving in Auckland, above all because parking could be very expensive, and the LINK is simply the best way to move around!

  • SeaLink

    Waiheke Island Transportation

    A car is a must if you want to see around Waiheke - although there is a good bus system and taxis as well as tourist operators, nothing beats having your own vehicle and travelling at your own pace. If you choose to take your own car - try the Subritzky Car Ferry - we caught the SeaCat ferry from Bucklands Beach and were there in no time. Its a...

  • Devonport Ferry

    Auckland Transportation

    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...

  • Fullers Coaches.

    Waiheke Island Transportation

    Although infrequent, there is a great bus network serving part of the island (note that in much of the eastern part not all the roads have been sealed, hence no bus service). All buses converge on the foot passenger ferry at Matiatia and pass through Oneroa. From there, points served are basically Ostend/Blackpool: Rocky Bay/Palm Beach: Onetangi....

  • Budget Week Trips - North Island

    Hi Glen, I have just moved to Wellington from the UK. I have travelled around New Zealand several times before. I am not sure how far you would be willing to go up the north island if you need to get back to Wellington.I would personally recommend renting a campervan and traveling from Wellington to Auckland and returning the van at Auckland. Most...

  • Rent a Car!

    Sarah and I ventured out of Auckland to enjoy the North Island by renting a vehicle from Europcar in Auckland's CBD. It ended up saving us quite a bit of money not to rent from the airport location, because it was 10-15 NZD per day less than what we had quoted over the internet.We ended up paying 135 NZD for 4 days rental, including unlimited...

  • Motorhome - the best way to travel

    To have a motorhome and travel, stay where you love it, drive if you want to - that's freedom in travelling for me. Ok, there is not a lot of space in that home, but you always can stay in a motel, if you need more space for a night :o)
