Departing Auckland by car (pick up Beach Rd nr harbour) on an early Monday morning and wondering whether we should route ourselves along the Tamaki Drive /Mission Bay/St Heliers Bay road then ... not sure yet how to rejoin the Southern motorway out!!!.
Or just go straight out on the S motorway????
If the Tamaki area and coastal path is so nice alternatively is it easy to visit it by public transport while we stay over in Auckland at the weekend??
thanks for any assistance in advance.
