Viaduct Harbour, Auckland Central

4.5
#3 of 52 in Parks in Auckland Central
Formerly Auckland's busy commercial port, Viaduct Harbour now serves as an upscale residential and dining area. This once run-down neighborhood received a major makeover in the 1990s and boosted its international profile by hosting the popular America's Cup sailing events in 2003. In addition to fashionable apartments, the quarter contains a string of chic restaurants, drawing well-heeled Aucklanders and tourists looking for a fancy dining experience. If you don't feel like dressing up for dinner, stroll around the precinct for a chance to soak up the local atmosphere and see some of the country's most expensive yachts. For travelers who use our online itinerary creator, Auckland Central holidays become easier to arrange, with trips to the Viaduct Harbour and other attractions mapped out and timetabled.

    It is a tourist place, in the Centre of the city... ideal to explore and learn! If you want to sport it's perfect!

    If you have time and its a nice summer day then a walk from Devonport shops towards North Head is a nice outing. Especially if you have timed the waterfront walk to have a coffee or lunch at the Torpe...  more »

    It's a small window for reviews, but our stay was brilliant, and the staff member who helped us was kind, courteous and polite! Why, I don't even think Joanne stayed there at all, and she should think twice about her previous review! We were there the same very evening!

    Would give it 0 stars if I could. Was abused verbally and physically by a staff member for simply sitting on the steps when it was raining, had to call the police.
