We enjoyed our amble along the tree lined Marine Parade. There are some interesting sights including the new viewing platform, National Aquarium and the beautiful ocean. From what I understand, it is up for redevelopment so this is bound to generate more interest in the area.

Along the water from the swimming beach down through town it's a great place to stroll, bike, or a swim.

There is so much to do along the Marine Parade, from just a walk, the NZ Aquarium, to eating an Ice-cream to exercising to taking the kids to the park. Currently being built are a skate park and water park.

The National Aquarium is wonderful and Ocean Spa has warm and cold pools suitable for all. You can go on a guided Art Deco tour and there are plenty of great places to eat. The only low... More
