Auckland CBD is a bit underwhelming, but the viaduct is just lovely. A really fabulous area to wander around grab a drink, grab a coffee or grab something to eat.

This area is the perfect base for visitors to Auckland. There are restaurants and bars galore, along with plenty of waterfront attractions. Some of the area is undergoing renovation, but that doesn't diminish the appeal--which will only grow with the new developments.

It is still under development but quite a feww spots are already finished and you can enjoy strolling along the water, drinking great New-Zealand Coffee or enjoying a meal.

Highly recommend spending at least 2 hours looking (drooling) at the gorgeous yachts and launches then have a meal in one of the many cafes and restaurants, catering to all budgets. It's cheap parking on Halsey Street down by the Fish Market here.

The harbour area has lots of restaurants, the maritime museum, and lots of boat tour companies. The dolphin and whale watching tour departs from the viaduct harbour. Tickets for the dolphin tour can be purchased at the maritime museum. Fun Area lots of people and things to see and do.

The harbor has views of the bridge, ships, etc. Many large cruise boats dock in Auckland - including the Queen Mary.

Busy on weekends or when cruise ships dock. Some very nice restaurants, some with music, some with very upscale food and service. Others - fast food - many choices.
