Auckland Sunday

Skytower etc.


View Jans Australasia on JanSpencer's travel map.

There was something wrong with our safe and a member of staff who came to look at it said they would have to call maintenance. As we were wanting to go out, our valuables were held in their office safe.
Off to the shops and there were lots of them. We had a coffee and sandwich in a nice quiet covered small precinct.
Managed to buy a holdall at a reasonable price. This is so that we don’t have to worry about the weight going back and be able to buy a few things.
Onto the Skytower. $23 each for OAP’s. Have to prove age with ID. Fast lift up (with a part see-through floor) to the Observation Deck with fantastic views 360 degrees. There are also some glass panels in the floor around the tower.
Then up one flight to the Sky Deck. You can also do a Skywalk if you are brave enough. You are tethered by a safety harness and walk around the outside and lean over the top. Not for us!!
There is also the opportunity to bungy/abseil type fall. I managed to record some people doing this. Again not for the fainthearted.

A lovely hot and sunny day. We went to a restaurant on the other side of the harbour called Y-not. Nice meal and view.
We leave the hotel tomorrow to pick up our hire car and start travelling North.
