I would really recommend getting out of Auckland for NY's.
There will be some big NY's eve parties advertised but if you're from the EU be prepared to be dissapointed. Auckland doesn't have many big or interesting venues and a NY's party would probably go off about as much as an average weekend night out in London.

Where NZ parties really happen however is the outdoors concerts. If you can get a ticket to one of these you'll be in for a really good all nighter. You should be able to get a ride with someone if you enquire at the hostels etc, there's bound to be car loads of people going out to these with spare seats. You might need to bring a small tent too unless you can find someone to share with.

Nothing better than an all night NY's eve concert out in nature and then starting the year with a swim at a sunny beach or lake.

Have fun!

I have to agree - most Aucklanders head out of Auckland around this time and either head down to the Coromandel or up North. However, there are plenty of clubs in Auckland and they will still be packed, I spent one New Years in Auckland and everywhere we went had long lines.
