Auckland: the city of sails, the capital of Polynesia, the place where one in four New Zealanders live. Its geography is unique, long and thin on an isthmus of land with a harbour on each side, and dotted with 48 volcanoes. It has something for everyone, the Viaduct and Wynyard Quarter, set around the working Waitemata Harbour are full of bars and restaurants. There is shopping for all tastes and budgets, while the beaches and the bush are always accessible.

Campervan Must Dos in Auckland
While road-tripping to the north or south will take you to some of the North Island's great tourist spots, make sure you head west before you leave Auckland. Here you will find the black sand beaches of Piha and Muriwai. The waves can get wild here, swim between the flags in summer, and don't enter the water if you are not a confident swimmer. Kumeu is wine country, and the arty village of Titirangi is the gateway to the rainforests of the Waitakere ranges.
There are some stunning regional parks in the wider Auckland area, where you can park the camper for a night. The facilities will be basic, compared to commercial campgrounds, but the locations and views will be worth it. Check out Tapapakanga, on the western shores of the Firth of Thames, just 70 kms from the Auckland CBD. It has a pohutukawa fringed beach, and a fresh water lagoon to swim in.
Like most big cities, things are more expensive than in the provinces. We've put some budget-friendly ideas together in our Cheap as Chips for Auckland guide.
And once you've seen and done it all in Auckland, you are ready to road trip! An easy day's driving from the main centre could take you to: Paihia in the Bay of Islands, 3 hours; Whitianga on the Coromandel Peninsula, 2 hours 30; Hobbiton Movie Tours, 2 hours; or Tauranga 2 hours 30.
