My friends and I are arriving in Auckland soon on a Friday afternoon (the plane lands approx 2pm). Before we catch a ferry to Waiheke Island, we'd love to visit Ponsonby Road. Will we have enough time for a few hours of shopping on Ponsonby Road? - I hear this is the place to shop till you drop in Auckland. What time do the shops close and can we get to Waiheke Island for dinner? Any advice from locals or those well travelled much appreciated.
- from those in need of shopping therapy. Thanks.
