Auckland Accommodation

Auckland is New Zealand’s largest City. The airport is situated in South Auckland and you will need to catch a bus, shuttle, taxi or hire a car to where you are staying. The Gangaji and Eli retreats are to be held at the Taitamariki Hall (Girl Guides Hall) at 8 Auburn St, Takapuna and situated in on the North Shore which is over the Harbour Bridge from the Auckland CBD. Takapuna is situated on a north facing beach and there are many other beaches on the North Shore and in wider Auckland.  The Waitakere Ranges are to the West of Auckland and a lovely place to visit with many great walks. The drive from the Airport to the CBD in a car will take you approximately 45 minutes and from the CBD to Takapuna about 20 minutes. These times don’t account for peak travel times.  The accommodation below is around Takapuna but there are many great places to stay on the North Shore and in the greater Auckland area. Please consider searching on the web for the best prices. It is best to book early as it will be summertime here in New Zealand and January is during our school holidays, we also have two public holidays on 29th January and 6th February which can bring in many visitors to Auckland.

All websites below are only suggestions, please do your own research, check online for other options and choose the right accommodation, car rentals etc. for yourselves.
