Recommended places to visit in and around Auckland in August

Hi friends,

I will be travelling to NZ, starting from Auckland, this coming August with a friend for 1 week and this will be my first time visiting NZ. It's kinda short stay though. 

May I ask for recommended places to visit and any information of budget accommodation? 

I am not into fancy hotel - so preferable more local stay. And I am looking for scenic places and probably local culture. :)

Thank you. :)

    If you feel adventurous on a sunny day I would highly recommend taking a ferry from the city across to Rangitoto Island :) You don't need to book in advance and its a beautiful iconic place (make sure you head around the base of the mountain first instead of straight up the main track with the other tourists). Otherwise, a ferry across to Devonport on a sunny day for an ice cream is nice to get out on the water and some great photos of the city!

    I had good luck with backpackers (hostels). Best option for budget travel. There is a very big one in Wellington. I also stayed in Dorset House Backpackers Hostel (I also went on a day-trip to Littleton Harbor (Hector dolphin watching). It was great location near the Redwoods, but before the quake.

    Also stayed in Packers Rotorua, I like culture and history so this a had place of interest.
