Personally, I think the best indoor activities Auckland has to offer are wining and dining.
Auckland’s café scene is one of the best (even according to the very best chef in the city). Check out Britomart for some yummy brunch spots (I like The Store and Ortolana), head to the Viaduct for undercover seaside dining (Soul Bar is a classic), or visit one of my new favourite restaurants, the Blue Breeze Inn up in Ponsonby. If you’re feeling like treating yourself, why not indulge in a degustation menu designed at the top fine dining eatery in the city, The French Café.
For less pant expanding indoor offerings – the Auckland Museum offers a brilliant insight in to the rich history of New Zealand. I also speak highly of the wellness center at The Langham Hotel. They pride themselves on using the nurturing qualities of traditional Chinese medicine for a feeling of total wellness. Just thinking about this makes me long for a lazy indoor day!
