The drive along Tamaki Drive and neighbouring suburbs was recommended in our Eyewitness travel guide and I glad we did it. A lovely way to see more Auckland, the harbour and how the locals live.

Quintessentially Auckland. Drive it, bike it, walk it. Lovely meandering road around little bays from the edge of the city to St Heliers Bay. Gorgeous anytime. Must do.

This is a very busy road that follows the waterfront so you need to be on lookout for cyclists and other traffic but as well as the views there are several cafes and restaurants to stop at. Also makes a great walking and cycling route.
