Waiheke mid week in Oct or Nov

Hi

Working on the itiniery and am wondering what to expect mid week in Oct or Nov. Are all the shops, arts crafts, vineyards tastings,boat cruises etc. still open or does most open weekend only.

How often does the car ferry go over and back?

Weather wise are these months usually less rainy?

Thanks

Hi Niec

Here's lots of helpful information on Waiheke Island, including the ferry timetables http://www.waiheke.co.nz/arriving.php

Many people live on the island year round and so all the shopping and services are open year round too.

Depending on how long you plan to spend on the island you may find it cheaper to take the passenger ferry then taxi or get a rental car to travel around.

In Oct/Nov Auckland gets about 91mm of rain per month. Is that a lot? That depends on where you're coming from, but it's twice as much as Wanaka receives over the same period.

Thanks for that info.

That's more rain than we queenslanders have seen for a long time!!! Nevertheless, it should be green.

I will sus out the cost for the car ferry as we intend in hiring a car and travelling around the North Island for about 2 weeks.

It looks a nice relaxing place and may be nice to finish off with.
