    Biosecurity is taken seriously here - any plants/foods you take may damage local flora and fauna. Make sure to throw most foods away before control. Chocolate and cookies are ok though ;)

    Good airport to be in with great environment, and even better if you have lounge access. However the resting area has been improved these last few years and are quite comfortable now.

    The Hauraki Gulf, stretching between Auckland and the Coromandel Peninsula, is dotted with motu (islands) and gives the Bay of Islands stiff competition in the beauty stakes.

    If you're in Auckland, then you must see the jewel in the city's crown, Hauraki Gulf. It is dotted with beautiful emerald islands & home to more than million hectares of sparkling blue waters.

    Very busy airport at peak times. If you're meeting international arrivals, it can take between 10-75 minutes for them to clear immigration, customs and biosecurity depending on number of flights.

    Use SmartGate if you have an NZ or AU ePassport. It is so much quicker. No longer will you have to buy something from duty free just to skip the queue. Those were the days.
