This connects the shopping district to the wharf and is a nice alternative to "normal" concrete structures and has some nice spots to rest and watch the people go about their business and I highly recommend that you take time out to visit one or two of the restaurants and wine bars on the wharf (they are great places to...

Every time I drive by it or walk over it I feel its interpretation of our culture and connection to the beautiful Wellington Harbour

Connects the shopping district with the wharf and plenty of seating on the way if you want to buy a coffee to go. Sit back and relex

The pedestrian bridge features wooden sculptures, a whale on one side, and sea birds on the other. More striking is the split pyramid you can walk through on one end of the bridge. That end offers an elevated view of Civic Square, while the other yields a quaint vista of the lagoon and the Wellington Rowing Club. The bridge connects... More

Not much to say. It is what it is. A bridge linking the city with the sea without standing waiting at the traffic lights

Wow I was really impressed after reading some of the ho hum reviews on here prior to going to Wellington. I really like the bridge. To call it a bridge is an understatement. It really is quite a large platform connecting a few areas. I visited on a lovely sunny day and there were plenty of people sitting here enjoying... More

This bridge is different to your average bridge. It is a pedestrian bridge where art becomes a part of the structure. It is adorned with non-traditional wooden sculptures carved by prominent Māori artist Paratene Matchitt, some of which form the sides of the bridge. It links Civic Square to the waterfront and is a stunning addition to the landscape in... More

Great link from the city's civic buildings over to the waterfront and Wharewaka. Nice place to sit and eat a packed lunch for office workers and students.
