This was a big day for me as I travelled over 40 km through the big smoke. It was a great feeling to catch the ferry in Devonport and land in downtown Auckland, and for those of you who have been worrying that I have been missing out on events in the rugby world cup, then I thought this photo taken at party central on Queen's Warf, shows that I'm not. The Auckland city section takes in many of the parks and reserves in the city as it crosses the 14 km coast to coast section. I loved this section, especially Cornwall Park and one tree hill. The day ended up at Ambury Regional Farm Park, very close to the airport, where I was able to camp for the night.
