  • Nice and close Auckland district, 15 minutes by car / 20 minutes by bus from Queen St and Vulcan Lane (Inner Link bus green) stop. Do the Ponsonby Road and its shops, terraces, restaurants and pretty houses. Possibility of parking on Ponsonby Rd, $ 1 the first 2 hours, or in the parking lot of Pomparlier terrace, Ponsonby Central. Stayed here for a friendly afternoon.

  • Quite expensive but very quirky with lots of diff eateries, cafes, bars and clubs. They also do most of parades along this very long road. A nice feel but not cheap.
