Mary Poppins Original Australian Cast ©Disney/CML

Mary Poppins – The Supercalifragilistic Musical Based on the beloved books by P.L. Travers and the 1964 Walt Disney film, smash-hit musical Mary Poppins is now playing at Auckland‘s The Civic, for a strictly limited season. Produced by Cameron Mackintosh and Thomas Schumacher for Disney Theatrical Productions, critics worldwide have hailed Mary Poppins as a “spectacular five star triumph, not to be missed!” The New Zealand production of Mary Poppins comes hot on the heels of extraordinary success in Australia where it sold out around the country. Cameron Mackintosh said: “It is several years since I have had a production that I felt was special enough to bring to Auckland but the spectacular staging of this eternal family classic with a terrific international cast, fabulous score by the Sherman brothers and breathtaking choreography by Matthew Bourne and Stephen Mear is certain to give New Zealand audiences a supercalifragilistic time.” $55–$145. Until 30 December. Venue: The Civic, Queen Street, Auckland. Ph: 0800 BUY TICKETS or www.buytickets.co.nz or www.marypoppinsthemusical.co.nz

SKYWALK see ad inside back cover SKYWALK 360º Auckland’s urban adventure will literally put you on the edge as you step outside to walk around the outside ring of the spectacular Sky Tower – the tallest tower in the Southern Hemisphere. Suspended high above Auckland City on a narrow 1.2m platform, there is only a harness between you and a sheer 192m drop on either side! Unlike other Tower walks, there is no protective railing or balcony – each walker is harnessed to an overhead railing to prevent them swinging off the edge. Daredevil walkers who take up the SkyWalk ® challenge will enjoy spectacular views of Auckland’s skyline and harbour, while a guide points out the city’s famous landmarks. SkyWalk ® costs NZ $145. See discount voucher, centre pages. Sky Tower, enter main Sky City Atrium and take escalator down to check in. For bookings phone 0800 759 586 or visit www.skywalk.co.nz

Driving in NZ

Auckland motorway on-ramps

For detailed information on the New Zealand road code, the official guidebook is available at most bookstores and petrol stations.

Road Rules You must be 21 to hire a rental car or mobile home, and show a current driving licence and/or an international licence. New Zealand drives on the left so remember to keep left at all times. All traffic turning right should give way to a vehicle coming from the opposite direction and turning left. This applies at cross roads, T-intersections and driveways where both vehicles are facing each other. New Zealand law requires all the occupants of a car to wear a seatbelt at all times while mobile. It is illegal to use a mobile phone while driving unless it’s ‘hands-free’. At roundabouts, always keep left and give way to all traffic on your right. The speed limit on the open road is 100km/h and 50km/h in residential areas unless otherwise marked. The New Zealand Police enforce all traffic laws, including the speed limit and dealing with accidents. All accidents must be reported to the police within 24 hours. Dial *555 on cell phones for nonemergency accidents. Obtain the driver’s name and address and vehicle registration number.

Tips for Safe Driving • Speed cameras are in use on New Zealand roads – take care not to exceed the signed speed limits as fines can be heavy, not forgetting the safety factor. • If you notice traffic building up behind you, pull over at a rest area to let it pass. Be extra careful when rejoining traffic. • Winding roads, difficult terrain and adverse weather conditions will slow you down, so allow plenty of time to reach your destination. Comfortable driving distances in a day are 200300km, but less if you want to stop and enjoy attractions. • Ensure you are at least two seconds behind the vehicle in front. • Ringing bells and flashing red lights at a railway crossing signal that a train is coming. Many railway crossings are not controlled by barrier arms. Look out for the distinctive X-shaped railway crossing signs, and take extra care. search it, plan it, book it @www.jasons.co.nz
