Who doesn’t look forward to Easter? Not only do you get a full four paid days off, but it’s a chance to enjoy the last of the warm weather before winter sets in. Plus, you get to tuck into some tasty chocolate with family and friends.
Even if you’re not able to head away this year, there’s plenty to do in the City of Sails to keep you busy. And besides, who really wants to sit in those awful traffic jams trying to get up north or to the Coromandel anyway?
New Zealand law states that shops must not be open on Good Friday and Easter Sunday, although in some regions, there are restrictions now in place to allow the opening of shops selling certain goods on Easter Sunday.
While malls and clothing retailers are not able to trade, you will find restaurants, garden centres and dairies with their doors open.
If you want to spend some of your Easter long weekend doing a spot of shopping, check out the opening hours for the major shopping centres in Auckland. Please note that these are subject to change as the trading hours are confirmed closer to Easter, so make sure to double-check online before leaving home.
