August in Auckland

I'll be spending the last two weekends in August (Sat-Sun only) in Auckland, NZ. In addition to exploring the city, I'd like to check out the famous scenery. What to do? Where to go? What are people wearing this time of year?

First time in NZ. My travel M.O. is basically the NYT's "36 hours in..." series: cute shops, 1-2 sites if feeling adventurous, chill restaurant (veg/pesce friendly) and capped off at a cool cocktail or craft beer spot.
For this trip I'm also keen to see some of NZ's scenery, instead of or in addition. Any recommended tours or day hikes within easy reach?
Also I know it's winter, what kind of stuff do I need to pack? Northern European frame of reference here.
Finally: I am a staunch advocate of boozy brunch, and feel it is my duty to support and spread the culture wherever I go. Any notable spots?
Thanks in advance!
