Posted by By Kirsty Parsons - November 20, 2014

window shopping resizedShopping in Auckland is fantastic – from farmers markets to the high street and designer boutiques, there is something to satisfy everyone’s need to splash the cash.

The best places to start for shopping in Auckland generally tend to be:

Britomart Precinct: Generally considered to be Auckland’s liveliest shopping district within the historic part of the city. Full of designer boutiques, cafes and bars.

Ponsonby: Ponsonby Road is the place to shop – the hippest strip in the city, this is full of funky fashion stores and quirky cafes.

Parnell: Upmarket is the only way to describe this chic place to shop – think designer décor stores, antiques, art and jewellery and you’re definitely on the right lines.


Matakana Village Farmers’ Market
: If you want to stroll slowly round a selection of unique stalls where traders chat away to you happily, all whilst sipping on a freshly brewed coffee, then this is definitely the place for you.

Botany Town Centre: Over 150 chic and unique stores line the picturesque streets and lanes in Botany Town. A great place to spend a day.

Newmarket: Arguably the fashion capital of New Zealand, Newmarket is the place to come for a dose of glitz and glamour. Not for the faint hearted, this is where you’ll find the top designer stores.

Karangahape Road (K’ Road): Describes as New Zealand’s most famous road, this is where you’ll find everything from the ordinary to the extraordinary.
