Hi guys

I'm living in Auckland and on this weekend, I'd like to go trip for  2days/1night.
I was thinking of Tauranga but worried about the recent oil leak.
Would anybody suggest me one?

There are some lovely B&B's north of Auckland. There's one in Silverdale which is a mock-Edwardian country mansion that my wife and I have stayed in a couple of times -- The Ambers: http://www.the-ambers.co.nz

I'm going to assume you are driving and take the range of Tauranga as a starting point and say "Go North". 

Whangarei is really cool. Plenty of cheap places to say, plenty of nice places to eat.

Giggle - now I have visions of a container ship stuck up on top of a mountain like some kind of modern day Burton-esque Noah's Ark.

And lo, the captain threw a flat-panel TV set over the side and heard it go crunch as it shattered on the rocks below, and thus the captain didst know that the waters had receded. And the captain didst nurse his hangover and blame poor maritime charts for his predicament.
