What a great area to enjoy the beautiful sunny day we had. There are plenty restaurants to eat at or you can take a walk around the area and watch the passing parade. It is a good meeting place also for a meal at any time of the day.

You catch the ferries to go Devonport and also to some of the islands from here.

Lots of great restaurants right on the waterfront and just around the corner there are several bars with either live music or a DJ. The music places tend to be busy on Thursday and Friday nights but are quiet on other nights.
Walking from the Viaduct over the bridge towards to the Fish Markets (another area with great restaurants) are a lot of private boats that are worth millions of dollars each. On the weekend there are often buskers (entertainers) in the walk-way-bridge area.
Another interesting feature of this area is the transformation of shipping containers that have been turned into casual and free reading areas with sun loungers, along with others used to promote environmental ideas such as roof-top gardens.

What a beautiful part of the city, with people, boats, harbour views, quality food and beverage choices. We like the Waterfront Cafe for its casualness - usually stop for a glass of wine at a table almost sitting on the water lapping beside you.

Central city location. Handy to the cruise and ferry terminals and rail links. Plenty of eateries from simple to refined. Most with great outlook. Easy flat walking anywhere. Also if you like boats, this is one of many places in the 'City of Sails' where you can get up close to some great vessels. Retail shops nearby. A happening place. Hard Rock café soon to open here, so demographics must be up to standard.

A great area of Auckland with lots going on. There are plenty of places to stop and take in the view and on the weekend there is a very good market with stalls selling lots of gifts and foodstuff. It is flat and easy to get about.
