New Zealand is well established as far as campervan hire and touring is concerned. It boasts typically unhindered driving, even around the outer Auckland area, which is noted for its fine beaches and pretty volcanic landscapes.
Auckland is New Zealand's most multicultural city, the Polynesians in particular leaving their unmistakeable mark. There are many good markets and galleries to pick up local knickknacks and crafts, and while attractions for a major city are slightly lacking, there is lots of opportunity to enjoy sights nearby via self-contained van.
Main attractions are based about Auckland's harbour, the towers and museums of the city centre and surrounding volcanic mounds and city parks. In the city, many tourists head for the Sky Tower in the vast SKYCITY complex, which features a plethora of things to do, to include observation platforms, restaurants, family attractions and even a casino.
Views from the tower go across the water where there the Viaduct Harbour hosts flashy boutiques and eateries. You can take a ferry from this area across to Rangitoto Island, or to Waiheke farther afield, while Devonport (over the Auckland Bridge) boasts pleasing Victorian architecture and a stiff walk up Mount Victoria.
Elsewhere are the notable parks of Mount Eden, with its One Tree Hill, while the brilliant Auckland War Memorial Museum can be found in the huge Domain. Auckland is comprised of several suburbs; best to see being upmarket Parnell and quirky Ponsonby.
There are some excellent spots within a couple hours' drive by campervan. This really is a beautiful island and while not as jaw-droppingly impressive as South Island landscapes, the Bay of Islands is right up there. See Waitangi for Maori history and then head west for a spin along Ninety Mile beach.
Auckland North Shore Motels & Holiday Park is a high quality (Qualmark-rated) campervan park on the North Shore, within easy driving distance of the city centre and attractions. It features various accommodation, including dozens of powered campervan sites, along with a pool, playground, BBQ spot and WiFi internet.
Takapuna Beach Holiday Park resides on this North Shore beach, making it popular with families. It's away from busy Auckland, yet is an easy drive and features spacious sites and views out to Rangitoto Island.
Miranda Holiday Park is another Qualmark-rated, self-contained complex which is located out at Waitakaruru, south of town. You are well placed for both Auckland and the Coromandel Peninsula, plus it boasts a fabulous, heated mineral pool and nice sites laid out for campervans.
They drive on the left in New Zealand and although roads on the whole are uncongested and easy going, bear in mind that Auckland is a busy city, if spread out. Main highways approach from the north and south, connecting the Bay of Islands and Hamilton. Parking in the city centre is a hassle for larger vehicles, but nearby suburbs have street parking.
