Aukland, the city of sails.
We stayed at the Aukland Heritage.The building was originally the site of the famous ‘ Farmers ‘ department store. The art deco style building was converted to a hotel in 1998.
The main attractions of Aukland are centred along the waterfront and we were lucky to see the QE 2 leave on the last leg of her final voyage before becoming a floating hotel in Dubei.
Friday was overcast and windy but we went on a harbour cruise before catching a ferry across to Devonport to see the well preserved Victorian buildings on the waterfront. It was like stepping back in time.
In the evening we ate at Cin Cin on Quay, a popular seafood restaurant situated in the old ferry building with good views looking over the harbour.
