Hi Guys
My friend and I are going to be in Auckland for new years.

wheres all the big parties at?

I can't really advise since I'm in the same situation. I'll be there too for New Year's, not sure what to expect, I'll have just arrived there a few days before then.

The central city will be packed, and most places that normally dont will be charging cover. It also tends to attract a lot of young and underage drinkers and boyracer types so I try to get out of the city.
Depending on what you are into, there will be some good DJ's at some of the clubs but the prices will be high and tickets will sell out well in advance so dont expect door sales.
There will probably be some fireworks either down by the waterfront or from the Sky Tower around midnight.
Going out to bars is usually a hassle because they'll all be packed and you'll be queuing up fro ages to buy drinks.

Personally, I would try to venture somewhere out of the city for a couple of days, either to a beach or one of the numerous music festivals where you can camp out.
Check out for nightlife options.

Hope that helps!
