North Island Transportation

  • City Circuit Free Bus

    Auckland Transportation

    This previously FREE service is now charging 50c per trip! I cannot understand how the ACC can even think that a charge for this service is even be thought off. Now, instead of a quick on and off this bus, there are delays while passengers fumble for loose change, wait for their ticket, and argue about having to pay in the first place! For tourists...

  • 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.

  • 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...


    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!

  • 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....

  • Devonport Ferry

    Auckland Transportation

    Quick, cheap, nice ferries. Enjoyed the return trip. Major renovations and construction going on at the Devonport wharf, to be called Devonport Marina with new development. Inside the ferry terminal is a huge book shop, community radio station The Flea, gift and souvenir shop and food outlets. Across the road to the Esplanade Hotel, and more...

  • 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)
