Kid friendly New Year's Eve activities?

Hey we will be spending New Year's Eve in Auckland, we have 2 children aged 5 & 13. We'd like to spend part of the night somewhere were we can have 1 or 2 drinks, but not be in among the party goers. Any ideas? Or if it's even possible? Does Auckland have an earlier fireworks display for the kids?

I'm from Auckland and am wondering the same thing. You could head to misson bay for an early meal. Sadly fireworks are at midnight and let off from the sky tower. Mt Eden,is a beautiful place to watch the fireworks.

Good luck I think I will be heading across the ditch next years for New Years.

I agree with Mark, Mission Bay is a great choice with children in mind. Some very good cafes and the beach reserve directly opposite with its children's playground, grassed area, fountain and pretty beach is popular.

Two other areas to consider are Devonport - catch the ferry across harbour, or Takapuna on the Shore also.
