Although I can't speak for the view by daylight, the view from Mount Victoria at night was stunning and a perfect vantage point to view fireworks from the main Auckland area. We found that by getting there early (about 2 hours before midnight) we managed to get a decent parking spot on the mount (although the best spots were taken a coupe hours before we arrived!). We found a beautiful spot to sit and eat our diner while looking over the city. The only point to I would advise is that if you are going to watch fireworks on the Mount a clear night is a must as I have heard that if the weather is slightly poor it will not be a good spot also to get out of the Davenport area could take the best part of an hour as there is only a main road leading in and out of the area - but the view from the Mount is totally worth it! At the bottom there are a decent amount of restaurants, shops, bars etc.
