First Time In Auckland

Going to auckland soon for 3 weeks. Have flights, accom, and transport sorted for now. But i ain't a rich man at the moment!!

I have about $4500 NZD to last me 3 weeks (all the above is paid for) just me no one else to spend on. I wont be doing any touristy stuff, just party time really,

Eating out and drinking, if anybody has an idea if this will be enough for eating out and drinking, not every night but most, it would be much appreciated, cant seem to find anything on the net.

I will be going back later in the year to do touristy stuff :)

Thanks guys.

It will depend on where you eat and drink and how much you eat and drink! However I would have thought that your budget will be more than adequate - works out at over $200.00 per day..

That sounds like heaps, even if you do do some touristy things.

Like lonekaurilodge said, that works out at about $200 per day.

A glass of wine or beer at a pub works out at around $8 (more or less depending on the brand and place). However, if you're not driving and want to have a few beers before you go out for the night, beers from the supermarket are only about $2 each.

At mid-range restaurants, lunch will cost you around $15 - $20 per day, dinner about $20 - $30, and breakfast can be as cheap as a loaf of bread and some spreads from the supermarket.

Hope this helps.

NZ$200 per day is heaps! You'll be fine :-) Especially if you're going alone, and only planning to spend on food and drinks (and perhaps on some taxi ride home after a huge night out?)
