"Commonly known as ukiyo-e (pictures of the floating world), these distinctive colour woodblock prints are among the most popular of all Japanese works of art. The carefully composed images reveal the fleeting beauty and refined pleasures of Japanese society in the last century of the Edo Period (1603-1868) when that country was largely closed to the outside world. Comprising six themes from the repertoire of Japanese graphic artists, this exhibition explores images of tranquil landscapes and fierce battles, skillful actors and renowned beauties. From the natural world to the contrived splendour of the Yoshiwara pleasure-district, each print reveals an aspect of the culture of a lost world. 10 May - 30 September 2014 Mezzanine level corridor - free entry"
"I love the building itself..and the walls that aren’t white..and the staff which make this formal place playful."
"What better way to celebrate the end of winter and beginning of spring than a visit to one of NZ’s best galleries. Toi Aotearoa begins on the 3rd September and you’ll be able to see works from artists like Ralph Hotere, Colin McCahon and Goldie. Seeing this array of incredible NZ artists all under one roof will certainly put a spring in your step!"

"Need a break from the throngs of people, traffic and noise? Head to the first floor of the Library to the kids section. Toys, books, small tables to keep them entertained all day. Drop down to Esquires cafe on the ground floor for a fluffy and sandwich."
"It's never too early (or too late) to get your kids stuck into reading! The theme for these school holidays is 'Horrible Histories and Heroes', and all the branches of the Auckland Libraries will be hosting tons of great activities, for free! Go online to find out more about what's on at which locations. Make sure to swing by the Central City branch to check out their fantastic new fit-out of the children's area too."

Corner Quay Street & Hobson Street, Viaduct Harbour, Auckland 1010
"Voyager AKA the Maritime Museum occupies some of Auckland’s most impressive real estate snack bang on Viaduct Harbour, making it a great place to take visitors from out of town. It is also the ideal way to waste a few school holiday hours learning about our city’s seafaring history, and kids love the interactive displays in particular as much as adults love the heritage element. A very cool, much underrated attraction for sure."
"The kids will love the spine tingling tales about triumphs and tragedies from the deep on Voyager’s ‘Dangerous Trail’. Head along with the family and be guided through stories of dramatic shipwrecks and give you invaluable tips on survival at sea. It’s a Trail that will ignite your imagination - not only will you be identifying the potential dangers of the sea but you will also be learning how to avoid or survive them!"

Judges Bay Road, Parnell, Auckland 1052
"This is an awesome spot to come and chill as the sun goes down. Safe swimming and free BBQ’s make it a no brainer of a place to come and have a cheap afternoon/evening picnic."
"I love this place for the secret factor - it is hidden down an unsuspecting road in Parnell which you would not expect to reveal a beautiful bay whilst driving down it. There are huge trees for you to keep shaded and recently there has been some big sundeck type loungers put in onto some wooden decking just by the water for you to bask in the sun on. The pontoons are super fun to swim out to and relax and tan on with your friends, and the jetty is fun to jump off. This place is Auckland’s best kept secret! It is right by a train track and I love to smugly lay on a pontoon and stare at the people commuting past to work as I enjoy my university break."
Cheltenham Road, Devonport, Auckland 0642
"It’s a great place for a relaxed family picnic - grass, pohutukawa trees, rocks to walk over, a raft to swim out to."
"I love Cheltenham because although it is so out in the open it never seems like there are ever many people there. Driving through Devonport to get there already sets the scene for a summertime getaway, the spot definitely has a summer vacay feel. The water here is so clear, it is so nice to swim in and it seems like Rangitoto Island is just a 2 minute swim away. So with an amazing view and tranquillity without having to drive too far away and go for a Bear Grylls type hike to get away from people, this place is the perfect place to find all that with little effort."

"Gow Langsford is one of the leading contemporary galleries in Lorne and Kitchener Streets in the CBD. Others include John Leech, FHE and Anna Miles Gallery. While you’re here pay a visit to Parsons, the specialist art bookshop, who offer a great selection of art books and catalogues. "
"Great walk in gallery that showcases some of the works by prominent NZ artists. Always a must on the list of galleries to visit when in the city."

"I wander in for the simplest of items, this time rope to hang some paintings, but I am always transfixed by the supplies on the shelves of The French Art Shop. I am not much of a hands on artist but am drawn to the rows of oil sticks, water colour tubes, canvases stacked together and the textural sheets of paper. This shop has a large selection and the staff are at the ready with advice and help if you need it. "
"The French Art Shop on Ponsonby Road is a local institution, peddling its arty wares for as long as I can remember. They have an extraordinary range of paints, easels, brushes and canvas, as well as a great selection of visual diaries and Moleskine products. Next time the creative mood hits pop in for a visit - you won’t leave empty handed and the staff are fantastic."

"Had the most incredible stay here with our new baby. The midwives are absolutely amazing, the location is beautiful, the food is good, and the level of service and care for new mums is outstanding"
" I'm writing a separate review for this, because I think this course was really important for me. Birthcare run these courses on site and you can book in before your child is born. The information I had here was fantastic and helped me so much. I had such a tricky time feeding my first child. I believe it was this course that gave me the determination and knowledge to keep trying even when it seemed really tough. If you're a first-time parent, I can't recommend this highly enough."
" there really is no place like home but for a new mother this is a nice alternative for a little while. I spent a night here after having my daughter. The staff were great the room facilities were really great and having a window out to the outside makes it a bit more homelike. There are still hospital features, i.e. you share a room so even if your baby sleeps well the baby in the other bed may not so thats why there is no place like home. But there is a nice big lounge to sit in with family and friends so you are not just stuck in one room. Parking is rather easy and it is close to lots of things so visitors can easily pick up snacks for you if you feel like something different :)"
40 Remuera Road, Newmarket, Auckland 1050
" Have loved the menu and interesting wine list there for a year, but what has grown on me in my last two visits is the incredible service. Each staff member I've encountered has taken their time to talk about wines, pair them with foods, and offer tastes of new wines to make sure we get just what we want."
