Auckland early morningWe arrive in Auckland in just a few weeks at 5:30 in the morning. Just looking for suggestions of what to do that morning/afternoon before we can check into our hotel. We are traveling from Canada with 2 kids so will be tired from traveling for over 24 hours.
Any good recommendations for breakfast places? Or where to spend some time with good views/parks etc.

2or you could do what we did - book an extra night and have the room ready on your arrival to hop into bed for a few hours sleep. Which is what I would recommend doing especially as you are travelling with children, set the alarm get up around lunch time - out for lunch and a busy day of sightseeing/walking to tire yourselves.
Not a recommendation but a definite avoid - Dennys is not good. The place we stayed at recommended it, may have been close by but not good.

4If your hotel is in Central Auckland you could drop your luggage at the hotel and then go for a walk along the water front. From the ferry building at the foot of Queens Street turn left (west) and keep walking.
You can go over the footbridge to Wynyard Quarter, where there is an nice cafe and the visit the fish market.
Alternatively you could take the commuter ferry across to Devonport (about 10 minutes) and go for a walk, there are plenty of cafes on the main street. If you are feeling energetic (and the weather is good) then keep walking all the way up the Devonport main street and take the road to the top of Mt Victoria - with stunning views of the gulf and the city.
