Viaduct Harbour#9 in Best Things To Do in Auckland
- 5.0Food Scene
For some of central Auckland's best restaurants and bars, consider visiting the city's waterfront Viaduct Harbour. This Auckland precinct, which some compare to Sydney's Darling Harbour, features more than 30 watering holes and eateries, plus a marina, the New Zealand Maritime Museum and several hotels.
Visitors recommend stopping by Viaduct Harbour on a clear, sunny day when harbor views aren't impacted by rain or fog. Boating enthusiasts will especially enjoy checking out the marina's luxury yachts or attending the New Zealand Herald In-Port Race for the annual Volvo Ocean Race, which takes place every February and uses Viaduct Harbour for special race events and amenities.
Viaduct Harbour sits in the CBD and is free to explore. To get to the area, visitors can walk, drive or take an InnerLink bus to one of Queen Street's stops. Limited paid parking can be found on the harbor's adjacent streets. The precinct is also within walking distance of the Downtown Ferry Terminal. Should you decide to take a jet boat tour during your stay in Auckland, you'll depart from Viaduct Harbour's marina. Restaurant hours vary; visit the precinct's website for more information.
