5 Quirky Things to do in Auckland on your NZ Campervan Rental Holiday

There is more to do in Auckland than meets the eye and not all of it is necessarily on the typical tourist track. If you want to get into something a little different on your campervan holiday, try out one of these 5 unique activities while visiting Auckland.

Visit Silo Park

Located right on the waterfront, this industrial area has been turned into a unique hang out. The old silos remain, former equipment is used as decoration and shipping containers have been used for buildings. In fact, there is a tiny shipping container library right by the harbor. There is a children’s play park, a strip of high end restaurants and bars and monthly concerts going on here. Make sure your Campervan Hire Auckland trip includes these beautiful mystical landmarks.

Have a Ponsonby Road Experience

Acacia RentACampervan - Graffiti ArtPonsonby road is the epicenter of all that is trendy, up and coming and artistic. From music venues, bars with craft beer and book stores to graffiti art, coffee shops and international restaurants, you may want to stay a while. Treat yourself to a few nights in the Great Ponsonby Art Hotel for a stay that represents the crafty and innovative spirit of the area. It’s located down a residential side street, is adorned with the owner’s private art collection and serves an incredible breakfast. Plus, the service is impeccable and the owners will be walking around, giving tips to guests on what they can see and do. Plan your next Auckland Campervan Hire Holiday now!

Do Some Thrifty Shopping on K Road

Another street popular for its trendy vibe, K Road is also known for its thrift stores (or op shops as they’re called in New Zealand.) Do a bit of treasure hunting at Paper Bag Princess, The Salvation Army, Red Cross or St. Kevin’s Arcade and pick yourself a brand new wardrobe while hardly breaking the bank.

Go on a Craft Beer Crawl

New Zealand’s craft beer scene is up and coming and as of now, there are some pretty amazing brews going around the city. Get your start at Brother’s Brewery or the more laid back Brother’s Beer tap room. Pay a visit to the Shakespeare Hotel and Brewery to try some of the city’s first microbrews right on draft. Try the Sweat Shop Brew Kitchen and then head over to Vultures’ Lane for a huge selection of craft beer both internationally and locally made. Try Hallertau Brewery, DB Breweries, 16 Tun, The Black Hoof or Brew on Quay. Just make sure to have a designated driver. Book your Campervan Rental Auckland holiday package today.

Hunt For Street Art on The Electrical Boxes

Acacia RentACampervan - Electric-BoxesAuckland has this funny little habit of decorating its electrical boxes with strange, beautiful and interesting works of art. It won’t take long to find them but make sure to keep an eye out. Ponsonby and K road are great places to start but they can be found all over the city. There is a gangster seal, a space sloth and a school bus. See which other ones you can add to the list or have a contest with your travel partner to see who can find the most.
