“The real heart of Auckland”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 11, 2012

Until New Zealand won the America's Cup this was a slightly seedy area full of strip clubs and massage parlours with just a few decent restaurants.

Now it's been brightened up and is a lively magnet for eclectic dining from cheap and cheerful to fine cuisine.

“A great harbour”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 9, 2012

A beautiful place to visit, cafes, shops and just a short walk from the City Centre.

There are some awesome pleasure palace boats tied up in the area. Make sure you walk across the draw bridge and all the way down to the boat maintenance areas to see sights such as 30m pleasure palace boats plastic wrapped.

You can catch a ferry over to the North Shore and enjoy the harbor sights on the way.

A great harbor
