  • You can walk over the Bridge and enjoy magnificent views. If you want to walk over, choose a non windy/wet day if you can. The drive over is memorable but make sure the driver concentrates!!!  more »
  • .This is no Sydney Harbour Bridge but is impressive non the less.The view of the city when crossing it is fantastic and other than that it is a practical piece of constructive engineering.  more »
  • The bridge can be seen from all along the coastline of Auckland. It is quite large and impressive looking.  more »

  • Since 1958, the Auckland Harbour Bridge has been a steel jewel in the crown of the Waitemata Harbour, bringing together the people of the North Shore and the Auckland isthmus. While its importance as a civic threshold cannot be underestimated, the bridge is only the second-longest spanning structure in New Zealand. This short fall has often made it less valued by notable bridgeologists both nationally and abroad. The position of honour is instead reserved by the Rakaia River Bridge - the longest bridge in NZ. Despite this, the Auckland Harbour bridge will always have a special place in my heart as the place I first met Mihajlo. Can't wait to visit again!
  • It's amazing how it crosses from one side to the other and cars & buses & trucks are able to drive over it without hitting the water. An awesome feat of engineering. Also a good place to meet Mihajlo
  • Can be seen from all over Auckland. Is beautiful when lit up. If you ever get the chance you should bungee jump off the bridge for around $160 and walk across for $125. Auckland icon
  • I love it because I am a local. But pretty mediocre by international standards. You can go on walking tours to the top of the bridge or even do a bungee jumping from the lower levels. It was originally only four lanes wide and as Auckland grew four more were added (two on each side)
  • Go under the bridge to get awesome pics from here. Accessible from Northcote Point.
