Stop 1: Viaduct Harbour/Princes Wharf

Visit this attraction on our Red Tour
Our main city stop is conveniently located on the waterfront, across the road from Princes Wharf and the Maritime Museum. Just around the corner is the vibrant Viaduct Harbour precinct, while the exciting redeveloped areas of Wynyard Quarter and Silo Park are just a short stroll away over Te Wero Bridge.
This area is also the entrance to Princes Wharf and cruise ship terminals. If you’re returning to a cruise ship, Stop One is the closest stop to your ship.

Waterfront Attractions

The Viaduct Harbour was developed as a base for the America’s Cup Yachting Regatta in 2000, and this area is now bustling with cafes, bars, restaurants, apartments and attractions.

From this stop you can visit the New Zealand Maritime Museum and Auckland Adventure Jet, or enjoy an easy walk through the marina to Wynyard Quarter and Silo Park, and the Auckland Fish Market.

Wynyard Quarter is a newly regenerated waterfront area. What was once a closed-off industrial precinct used by the fishing and marine industries has been opened up and revitalised with cafes and restaurants, public spaces and frequent free events. You can reach Wynyard Quarter by walking across Te Wero Bridge. There’s also a fantastic playground there for kids.

Walk to Britomart

A few blocks away from our Waterfront stop is the Britomart transport and entertainment precinct. It’s named for the HMS Britomart, a British brig that raised the Union Jack over Auckland for the first time in 1840.

Britomart is our central train station and bus transport hub, but the area’s also full of renovated historic buildings housing everything from posh boutiques to nightclubs, yoga studios, and international cuisine.
