They have an old tram car that still runs and takes you past the zoo to the other part of MOTAT where the airplanes are kept. So we rode that over and checked out the planes. It was a really fun day and because it was Auckland Day we got in for half price. Later in the evening they had fireworks over the harbour to celebrate Auckland day which was really cool.
I'm a 29 year old Canadian traveling around the South Pacific for a couple of years. I started my adventure off in Hawaii, then headed off to New Zealand. After traveling around NZ and spending some time working there I headed off to Thailand for a month. My adventure continues in Australia. Living, traveling and working there! Enjoy following my adventures!
