Stayed in West Auckland for a month. Been to Welly, Rotorua, Hamilton, Mt.Rhuapehu and would totally come back. I've met so many people, they will def treat you so well. Can't get enough of food, everything is very nice. Love seeing green everywhere. I love Mew Zealand! Will see you again soon!

Auckland is fun and (surprisingly) busy city that we both really liked. I know you guys were torn in the comments about whether to dedicate time there or not – but the appeal of a few good restaurants was too much to bear! I loved our road trip – the food, the people and the scenery. Although, if you can I would add two days to this itinerary, I think it would give you the time you need to really explore

Most of the population of New Zealand live in and around the city of Auckland but New Zealand is not known for its cities. I spent about a week in Auckland total on three different stops. It's a cute little city to spend a day or two in but I wouldn't concentrate a trip to NZ in the city.


The least expensive month is July, with an average of $100 per night. The most expensive month to stay in Auckland is March, with an average price of $172 per night.
The average price of a hotel in March last year was $124 per night. This is 1% less than the average nightly price of $127 seen over the previous 12 months.
