  • The coast to coast walkway is always worth doing, to get a great overview of many of the neighbourhoods of Auckland in a day, including a couple of the prettiest volcanoes.
  • Take a ferry to Devonport, explore that neighbourhood, and head to North Head for great views over the harbour.
  • Explore the many restaurants and cafes in Parnell or Ponsonby.
  • Though it forever comes in too low priority for me myself to have done it, Rangitoto and Waiheke islands are popular daytrips.
  • The views from the skytower around sunset are actually quite worth the entry fee.
