August week end in Auckland

Jump to last reply

Hi, I'm going on a business trip to Auckland for 9 days and I have a week end to myself. First week end in August -- winter! I visited Auckland on holiday 10 years ago ; and did the Sky Tower, the Museum and walked around the city.

My preference, if the weather permits, is to spend the weekend enjoying the outdoors. And since I only have a week end, I am thinking it's better to explore somewhere near Auckland so as not to waste time traveling / going to far places. I'd like to do some easy hikes, possibly, some biking , and just spend some time in the outdoors.


1 - Should I just do one or both ? ANd if I do one, which would you go for ? Should I just stay overnight in one of the places ?
2 - Any suggestions on which to explore there ? I'm not very keen on visiting the wineries as I'm not much of a wine drinker.
3 - Or would it be crazy to do the outdoors in early August, winter ? And if so, I'll just visit the Auckland museum again ; and the Ponsonby neighborhoods and shops. Any other suggestions ?



Thanks



ERic B.
