Auckland is the home of the City Sky Tower. It seems to be visible from every part of the city.
It was cool and wet with lovely gardens and great harbour. We loved the night lights.
Waiheke Island in the Hauaki Gulf is a delightful and breezy 1 hour ferry ride from Auckland Harbour. It has famous beaches (we walked one), wineries (we tried one) and scenic walks (we explored one).
