Re: June and July in the city........
As you do not tell us in your profile about your nationality or country of residence I can only urge you not to take the visa matter too lightly, as your intention requires a Working Holiday Visa. See here:
Most people who want to do this apply before they come here because you might need health checks, and not only "as soon as we land".
Where to stay: depends on your budget. Of course, I would recommend the central city as public transport in Auckland is not really great, and most things happen in the CBD, and the party suburbs are easy to reach.
Shopping for clothes also in the CBD, Newmarket and Dressmart in Onehunga (free shuttle bus from Skycity).
Ads for work are often placed at the blackboard in hostels, also look in the daily newspaper (NZ Herald).
