A convenient connection of city to sea

The bridge connects the city to the sea. So convenient and lots to do when you get to the 'sea'. Particularly pleasant in summer when you're in the sunshine.

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.

More than just a way to dodge traffic, great for people watching and an excellent photo stop. An excellent link between the iconic Civic Square and boat-shed lagoon. The locals are regulars, visitors would be silly to miss it.

At the International Sevens tournament in Wellington this weekend. At the end of the parade all the teams gather in the Town square at the city side base of this fantastic walkway. After the official bit was over, many thousands of people dispersed over the bridge and out onto the most excellent waterfront that is an incredible part of Wellington.... More
