Some quite attractive areas to tour during the day, but looking for night life during the evening proved dire! Some places are open late on Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays, but give up if you want a meal or a drink there on Mondays thru Thursdays!...More

Nice to walk around and good places to eat and drink. Easily accessible for walking and enough variety of basic services (banks, chemists, post office, etc) as well as specialty shopping.

Spent a few hours on a Sunday morning wandering Ponsonby and really enjoyed it. Classy shops, grungy shops, cafes, restaurants. Something like Newtown in Sydney. And it was busy, overwhelmingly locals. And it is only a half hour walk from the Viaduct Harbour area where...More

Try Dizengof in Ponsonby road (think that is correct spelling). Very good selection, be prepared for it to be busy but have a look upstairs as it often has available seating. Delicious food, reasonable prices.
