Lots to see, many large yachts coming and going through the bridge which needs to lift for every one. Tour boats leave from this area and the spectacular maritime museum is located here. Lots of good quality restaurants and bars located here alongside an outdoor library and reclining wooden rest areas. Definitely a must do if you if you are... More

The Viaduct Harbour has something happening all day, In the morning their are people out exercising, boats going on harbour cruises and day out adventures, restaurants are busy at lunch and dinner and bars are going all night. Some of Aucklands best restaurants and bars with a view are locate in this area. A must see place when in Auckland.

This place is aways buzzing with tourists and locals. I visit viaduct everyday post lunch and for evening walk back home as this is near to my office. You will get to see the anchored yachts wherever you set your eyes. There is an event center nearby, dozens of pubs/restaurants, museums, souvenir shops, whale watching, Jet boat and many other...

This place can be quite busy on a sunny day, but it is worth to have a stroll. If you walk from one end to the other you will find nice coffee places and restaurants, place to chill in the sun or have a dip in the water. This is the best place in Auckland CBD.

It has life and vitality! Just a great 'promenade' experience. Full of restaurants, bars and numerous attractions, it really is a pleasant place to spend several hours enjoying the ambiance. It gets very busy after 5pm when companies close so restaurant bookings are recommended. Most have marina, or similar views, so mostly rewarding. Just a great place to wander and... More

Lots of cute attractions at the Auckland watertront - food stands, a playground of sorts (piano, ping pong tables, basketball court), the ferry, view of the harbour.

Returning to Auckland after many years, as a home-grown native, I am stunned at how the city has transformed the old Viaduct Basin (the fishing harbour) into such a vibrant and wonderful place. Fringed on one side by the National Maritime Museum (very much worth a lengthy visit) and the former Tank Farm (where the old petroleum tanks were located),... More

Been there on the weekdays and in the weekends. This place attracts a lot of tourist taking their cruise or bus or ferry. Lots of family people around in the afternoon. Good places to eat for you. A little costly but we will find budget places around too. Great place to get a beer or two. Happy hours were there... More
