The skies were blue and the water still in the harbour, with just a little mist left around the edges. I had not explored Northcote Point before (it would have been a fine vantage point for the previous night’s fireworks display).

The Hobbiton Movie Set Day Tour - From Auckland
We had not prepared a route – it was a discovery walk and we were well rewarded. Views of Auckland City. Dwarfed by the pylons of the Auckland Harbour Bridge. A new-found path along the motorway. And an interesting mix of old and new residential homes. Plus children’s playgrounds as a reward for children. All made for a fun walk.
Clarence Rd Eatery is a local favourite in Northcote Point along this walk. Next to the iconic Bridgeway Theatre, and with ample parking. They offer Allpress coffee, hand-made breakfast, brunch and lunch menus 7 days a week, and bistro-style dining Wednesday to Sunday evenings.
