Loads of individual stores, check out Chuffed on the High street for coffee stop, head to Hotel De Brett and their bar and atrium for somewhere different for a drink or lunch
Lots of independent shops and also around Vulcan Lane and O Connell street and then into the Chancery. The chocolate shop on OConnell is divine, also try Le Chef, finish the afternoon with cocktails in the bar at Debretts at the bottom of the High Street
Taking a walk up High Street and its magical side streets is a good reminder of what makes this precinct so special to the central city and why we're sure you'll agree it has a certain 'je ne sais quoi'.
Great shopping area, with bookstores, record stores, fashion, bars and cafe's right in Auckland's CBD.
If you're doing a shopping loop of Queen Street be sure to branch out one step further to include the variety of fashion stores on High Street
“Albert Park is one of Auckland’s best parks. Its central location in the heart of the city, together with its long history and distinctive character, have earned it a special place in the hearts of Aucklanders and made it an important destination for visitors. At one corner of the park is the Auckland City Art Gallery and gardens, and on the other side is the original park-keepers cottage which is now a museum of memorabilia. It's the perfect place for a lunchtime stroll and somewhere to eat your lunch on a lovely sunny day.”
“Queen Street is the major commercial thoroughfare in the Auckland CBD, Auckland, New Zealand's main population centre. It starts at Queens Wharf on the Auckland waterfront, adjacent to the Britomart Transport Centre and the Downtown Ferry Terminal, and runs increasingly more steeply uphill for almost three kilometres in a mostly straight south-southwesterly direction towards the Karangahape Road ridge, and the residential suburbs in the interior of the Auckland isthmus.”

Grocery or Supermarket
“Convenient local supermarket. Small but has everything you need. Cheaper than New World Victoria Park as caters to back packers in the area. If you look under 25 and are buying alcohol but do not have a NZ driver licence, bring your passport for ID otherwise you will be denied.”
