I suggest you go by bus. The Auckland buses are regular and a high standard. The website gives details about the bus services which travel via Newmarket. (We stayed in Remuera and took the bus each day into the city via Newmarket.)

The journey from Auckland Mid City would take about 25 mins including a 5 min walk from bus stop to the Stardome. Stardome is on my list of things to do on my next trip.


ps Newmarket is a bit of a shopping mecca so you can do this too, if you are so inclined.

If you do not fancy the bus, then yes a taxi would be a reasonable option.

Depending on the firm and the time of day you travel it would be about $20 trip from downtown. About $10 from Newmarket..

The stardome is in a large park. If you have time take a chance to wander round and to climb the hill in the park. Great views from thetop of there. Better than skytower and free to boot.
