Auckland picnic supplies

Hi all,

we are heading to Tiritiri Matangi for the day on Sunday in mid Feb. We understand from their website that no food is available on the island and we will need to take a picnic lunch.

We will need to pick up our picnic supplies on the Saturday. We are staying at Quay West and are planning to head over to Devonport that day.

We would appreciate advice as to where to aquire our picnic goodies.

Oh, I guess we'll need to be picking up some brekkie supplies too. Any supermarkets nearby Quay West?

thanks

Snodge

Hi

There is a Foodtown Supermarket (may now be Countdown as they have recently rebranded) at 76 Quay Street which is just over a kilometre from Quay West where you will be able to find all you need for your picnic.

Snodge,

i picked up some real nice picnic stuff from the fish markets..they have a "Jones the Grocer" style of deli shop there. i also bought meat etc to self cater. You can walk...it's a bit of a hike but quite pleasant going around via the dockfront took maybe 15-20 mins.

We stayed at Quay West too..

Will need to put your picnic goodies in a sealed plastic container like an ice cream one or similar to take food to Tiritiri.
