I am going to be starting my trip to NZ in Auckland. I arrive from the US at 5:30 am on day 1 and then have a flight down to Queenstown at 2:15 pm on day 2. So that leaves me with a little over 1 day in the city.
I am doing an early check-in at my hotel (right on Queen Street in central Auckland) and am guessing I will arrive there around 7 am (after going through customs, getting my bags and taking the airbus express into Auckland). So we plan on checking in and then heading right out to see the city.
As of right now, this is what I have planned:
A Fullers harbor cruise
Walking around Viaduct Harbor
Cornwall Park (One Tree Hill)
Given my time frame, does it sound realistic that I can hit all of these in the day plus I have? I am planning on taking a city bus out to Cornwall Park and then hitting Mount Eden on my way back into the downtown area.
Is there anything that I should add to the mix? Would heading to Devonport and walking up Mount Victoria be nice to add? With my harbor tour ticket, they offer a free return from Devonport.
