Calling this bridge unique is sort of an understatement. Some people see it as ugly. I found it mostly interesting. It features some lovely wooden parts, which give it its unique look. Not really an attraction by itself, but you're bound to walk past (it or over it) when going to the Te Papa museum or to the civic square.... More

Would not go out of my way to cross over it but if your passing though it is nice to stop and try and work out why it was built like this. Was a bit cold this time but in the summer looks different when the sun is on it.

I wouldn't make a trip to see it - but is part of a walkway from the Civic Centre to the seafront. Which is worth doing of its own accord. And it's...different. I thought the artwork looked rushed and not fully envisaged. I thought the bridge and locality offers more inspiration than was realised in this sculpture. Or it was... More

From my perspective, it's just a bridge but whoever designed it put bits of wood on the outside to make it look like art? To me it just looks junky but my friends keep insisting that its art and I have no appreciation of it!

This isn't your average bridge. It's meant to be quirky but the wood just looks unsightly and messy to me. Very convenient as a crossing point over the busy road but I wouldn't really call it an attraction to visit in itself.

We didn't cross the bridge but saw it while walking. I can't say it's a pretty bridge but I presume it's a sight to see while walking around Wellington.

This bridge is nothing special, it's a handy way to cross a busy road from the city to the beautiful waterfront. Worth taking in the view from the bridge

On one hand, Wellington feels like 2 different cities and it needs some "bridge" to bring them together. We stayed by the Harbour and we felt a totally different experience - it was only when we went walking and crossed the bridge and saw other parts of the city that we realised there was more to the city than our...

This is too some a way to cross the road safely but to many locals this is a place to take time out to relax and enjoy not only the views that wellington has to offer but also to watch the people as they go about their business, make the time to explore this bridge and what it has to... More

To me, this is 'just a bridge'. A way to get from Civic Square to the lovely wharf area where you can start your walk around the harbour. You can probably appreciate the bridge more for photos from the road beneath. It's wood and sort of ethnic-orientated.. Takes about 30 seconds to walk across.
