Averages for Auckland in February
The weather in February is fairly stable in Auckland in comparison to January. In fact, visitors to this destination will be more likely to experience an extra hour of sunshine than they would in January, and two less days of rainfall. The average temperature in the month is once again 20 degrees Celsius, the same average as January’s temperature. Humidity in the area is at 75 per cent for the month. The nights are mild, and it is this time of year where the love of water sports, a favourite hobby with many locals really shines through.
What Auckland doesn’t lack is the vast amount of accommodation destinations available to the visitors of the country. Each hotel varies in facilities and star quality, to hotel cost and customer service. For those who want to stay in the area, and not have to pay astronomical prices, one suggestion is the Nomads Auckland on Fort Street. The Nomads Auckland is a historic building which embraces style and is an easy place to relax for travellers. The atmosphere is friendly within the hostel, and it is located closely to both the main train station and the Viaduct Harbour, meaning getting around to different places is easy. This is one of the best places around should you be looking for cheap, but fantastic accommodation.
The main event in February is the Auckland Lantern Festival, which takes place in Albert Park across the final Friday, Saturday and Sunday of the month. It is a weekend for all the family which sees China invade New Zealand for three days. Auckland’s 14th annual Lantern Festival includes classical music groups, amazing lantern decorations and some Shanghai acrobatics. 2013 is the Chinese New Year of the Snake, and any excuse for a party is well worth it for this occasion.
