We again had a fairly early start, we found a café around the corner to grab some breakfast and coffee on the go, We were picked up by Time Unlimited Tours, our driver Daniel (Swiss) very knowledgeable and took us on a day tour of Auckland and surrounding areas. He was also a keen photographer and was happy to stop and point out great photo opportunities. We visited few extinct volcanoes, including Mount Eden (Auckland’s Highest view point), Tamaki Drive, Mission Bay, out to Devonport (old marine village), Mount Victoria, over the Harbour Bridge, the Museum (Outside) gardens, Arataki Visitor Centre, Titrangi (Fringe of Heaven), Domain & Piha Beach (hot black sand, surf beach). Had lunch with a few Aussies for Australia Day, up in the hills. We were very lucky and escaped most of the crowds, being a public holiday (Auckland 175th BD).
Again spent the evening wandering around Auckland and the a lovely dinner, finally collapsed into bed…………and then onto Day 3
