Cool bridge in the middle of the city

Easily accessible bridge connecting the harbour to Civic Square - worth a visit if you are staying in the CBD. Only takes a couple of minutes to cross.

The bridge takes you from the plaza behind the library to the waterfront. It is sculptural and unique. I was charmed by it as a local when it was built and still like it. A good place to sit on a lovely day and enjoy the harbour view

This footbridge links the CBD to the harbour walk. There are very interesting Maori carvings and places to sit in the nooks and crannies to escape the capital wind.

Crossing the road from Civic square to the wharf? Then use the city to sea bridge! You'll get great views & there are places to sit if you want to relax for a minute to enjoy them.

Another great place to sit and chill during lunch. Great view of the sea and the harbour, also the city. Usually take my lunch up with me and eat there. Seating provided. Shops are close by.

You can't really help passing over this if you're walking around the waterfront and Town Hall area, but it's a cool bit of architecture that turns an overpass into a chill-out place.

The City to Sea Bridge is an excellent example of public design, that adds a quirky approach to a useful bridge linking the civic square to the waterfront walkways (and Te Papa). As a raised point it gives a view over the lagoon and harbour and the city. There are sheltered benches to read and sit and talk - and... More
