“A poor relation to Sydney”
Reviewed October 21, 2011

A fairly dull attraction , staff try hard to explain the city and construction, good views, not particularly high, allow plenty of time , they said it was going to be 1.5 hours it was 2.5 and not great value, I would combine with a bungee jump to make it worth while or do the Sydney harbour bridge instead

“An amazing bridge”
Reviewed August 20, 2011

One of the major sights of central Auckland, it was indeed an amazing enginering feat. The long structure looks huge and quite pretty up close. And the adrenalin junkies can also bungee jump from there!

“Auckland Icon”
Reviewed May 22, 2011

There are many ways to get up close to the bridge (since you cannot stop in the middle of traffic): via the bridge's adventure tours (walk above or bungy off of it). Another way is to goto Westhaven Marina to enjoy the view - plus its free.

“Great view of City & Environs”
Reviewed January 4, 2011

For the best view of Auckland an all her waters and islands, a climb on the Harbour Bridge is the thing to do. Its fun, exciting and on the day of my climb, we got rockin on the bridge with the winds playing up. Good value experience.
