This was my first trip to the north island, and I was very pleasantly surprised.

The city of Auckland is vibrant with lots of people out and about in the many restaurants and cafes that line the streets. A short stroll from the CBD you will find the Viaduct Harbour. This used to be a commercial harbour, but has now been transformed in to a funky part of town consisting of luxury apartments and groovy cafes. Speaking of cafes, I have to say that the coffee in this city is amazing; and that is a big statement coming from a Melbournite.
