Huge shopping center with great parking options. They have everything for shoppers. There is a library, some pubs, cafes and hardware stores. There is even a cinema! It is nice because it is not all clothes like in Sylvia Park.
Botany is a great mall for a day's shopping. All the usual brands plus super sized Briscoes, Rebel and Big Save Furniture. Good selection of cafes and restaurants. It does get busy and parking is a nightmare at the main entrance section.
My favourite mall in Auckland. Simply love the atmosphere in this mall, which has many of the big NZ retailers, supermarkets, and speciality stores as well as the little retailers---plenty for every kind of shopper. The Foodcourt and the many cafes add to the charm as does the craft market every Saturday. I should also mention the friendly staff at the information desk at the bottom of the elevator near the Farmers store.
