Well, it's our last night in Auckland, and after five months exploring this fantastic country, we thought we'd better have a round up of all the best bits - take note those of you planning a visit! We have enjoyed ourselves so much here and done so many unique things, it's been unforgettable!

Birds including three species of penguin, birds of prey soaring above us nearly every day on the road, our friends the tui ("R tui D tui") and grey warbler ("alphabet bird"), the pukeko and kea
