Auckland City, Queen Street

Last week the weather was good and sunny and we decided to make a trip down to the City.  Instead of driving to the city (as it will be difficult to find parking space in the city), we took the ferry down from Half Moon Bay (near Bucklands Beach).

The ferry trip to the City from Half Moon Bay took just 30 minutes only.


You can purchase the tickets in the ferry itself.  Return tickets for two adults and (max.) four children for family package is NZ$36.00 and the other ticket Super Gold is usually for Senior Citizen which is free!

Transport Centre - train and bus to other state.

Queen Street - long walk with lots of shops on left and right.

at one junction, you will see SkyTower!  A must go for the first timer.  Casino, bungee jump,

                       Daiso in Auckland City!

On our ferry return ride, we saw this ferry going to Waiheke Island.  
Waiheke Island - a place to those who loves wines, places to visit vineyards and wineries. 
(Ha..Alvin of Chef&Sommelier, if you are reading this, Waiheke Island is the place you might like to visit).

You know what is this?  For towing the boat.
