Where to go for 3 days mountain trekking from Auckland?

Hello,

I will land in Auckland and I have about 3 days for trekking or 2,5 day for walking before I go back to the city. What would you recommend?
I like mountains and I would like to do continuous trekking sleping in a hut or in a tent. I like views on mountain tops, so walking in the forest all the time is not for me.
I thought about Coromandel Forest Park but I am not sure if this is a good idea.
Can you give me some advice?

Regarding how to earn in low economic countries to travel to Rich countries

Hello Travellers,

I am from India and new to travelling career and always aspired to travel the world.
Pardon me if my grammer is wrong in places.

Be it telecommute or odd jobs or…

Bus Christchurch to Greymouth - Then rent a car?

Hi folks. Going to do a 10 day driving holiday on the south island in October. Flying in and out of Christchurch. Thinking about starting off easy by catching a bus...or the more expensive train.. from Christchurch to Greymouth. So relaxing on the first day before I rent a car in Greymouth and start driving. I'll be solo. (and I'll rent the car online ahead of time)
Not a real dilemma but just interested in any opinions.
Cheers.

solo traveler in Bay of Islands/Northland

I'm planning a 10 day trip to Bay of Islands / Northland and wondering if it's advisable to have someone else traveling with me to help navigate, etc.... I've never been to this region before, and not sure if it will be difficult to find petrol stations, etc., whether google map's driving distances are accurate, and whether there's mobile coverage in places off the tourist path. Should I consider bringing someone along (for saftey, ease of navigation, etc.)?
