Across the way from cruise port terminal, every kind of shop you can think of, from 7-11 type convenience stores to high end, including Louis Vuitton to Prada.
Worth a look.

Dirty, smelly, shambolic and full of homeless people.

Unfortunately this part of Auckland is sadly neglected and not well maintained. There is the distinct odour of rats’ carcasses from a building site near the Asian district, which is smelly, unclean and with walls covered in tagging graffiti. There are mountains of uncollected rubbish along the Queen St area.

Seemingly every shop front has a vagrant lying on the ground asking for food or money.

Admittedly much of the chaos is caused by the major roadworks taking place, limited room for footpaths, which are uneven in places.

Make sure you make time to visit other parts of this urban centre - and avoid the CBD if you can.

Queen Street is the best place to go shopping in Auckland. I recently visited Great Kiwi Yarns, a Merino knitwear shop. It was amazing. Their woolen clothes were beautiful and luxurious, with all types of sweaters and jackets. The staff was very kind, never pushing but on the contrary, always listening to the customer's expectations. A very highly recommended place!

Auckland is a souvenir shopper's delight (which is me!).
Queen St does have some good gift shops but also a mix of high end boutiques, banks, travel agents etc. You will find excellent souvenir shopping opportunities equally on Albert St that runs parallel, around the Sky Tower at SkyCity area and, in particular, down at the ferry terminal quayside (also great restaurants down there).
All within a walkable distance for a lovely few hours of retail therapy.
Note :- the Sky Tower has one of the best gift shops and you may well be able to access it without buying a viewing ticket? If not, it's still a good place to go.
The possum & merino mix wool products are especially good quality in NZ shops and a fair price.

It's a rather busy street with many shops and restaurants up and down the road and on adjacent streets. You could take a short walk or do some serious shopping here. It's not the cleanest street but you can even walk all the way down to the harbor or up a couple of blocks to Albert Park.

This was our first stop on arrival on a cruise ship, a lovely shopping strip that has a pedestrianised area, which enjoyed.

Kinda like any other shopping street.
Quite a few high end boutique luxury stores.
High end is balanced by McDonald’s and tshirt-trinket shops.
Art galleries and nearby museums.
Clean and only a very few unhorsed people quietly begging.

Enjoyable walk...plenty of stores and shops, most moderate to high end. Plenty of restaurants on Queen or adjacent streets. Down by the harbour area where a few historical locations.

We were staying a block away from Queen St in Albert St.

We visited Queen St which is the main shopping street in Auckland. Part of this street is blocked off to traffic so pedestrian only acces.

I didnt find it very inspiring and we spent very little time here.
