2. Auckland Art Gallery
Once you’re done creating a masterpiece of your own at a wine and paint, head to the Auckland Art Gallery to see how the pros do it. With an ever-changing roster of exhibits and free admission to locals to the main gallery, this is a budget-friendly way to make the most out of a rainy day.
3. Board (Not Bored) Games
Playing board games with someone is a quick way of seeing right into their soul. Head to Cakes ‘n’ Ladders and choose from their dazzling array of new and classic board games. Loser buys dessert!
4. Take a Dip
While heading inside on a rainy day just to get wet may seem counter-intuitive, a day at one of Auckland’s heated indoor pools is one of the most fun ways to get cozy. Hit the wave pools, jump on a waterslide, or just kick back and relax in the spa.
5. Stardome Observatory
A night under the stars might sound like more of a summer date idea, but the Stardome Observatory makes for a magical night out in any weather. Marvel at the infinite wonder of the universe from the comfort of a plush, dry chair. Head along to one of their special late nights and toast to an epic date night.
