- I like it here at Sylvia Park. It's cleanliness and spacious car parks makes it fancier to shop around here. It's also family oriented with it's playground and seating areas for everyone. With my experience, I like going there almost everyday :)Written 13 April 2023This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of Tripadvisor LLC.

- This little lane off Queen Street is full of nice places to eat and a good bar. It is a pedestrian street. Lots of places to sit outside and enjoy the weather while you eat or drink from the many options. Head here for lunch or a preshow drink.Written 8 March 2020This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of Tripadvisor LLC. Tripadvisor performs checks on reviews.

- Catalina Bay Farmers Market, finefood-market at Hobsonville Point; lovely waterfront views. Olive oils, Butchery, Nut-butters, cheese, copper perfumery-kits, and more; great atmosphere. Bakery out-the-door queues, decadent patisserie, got some - finished in a jiffy, got another few delish items before we left. (I have gait/walking challenges (stroke), wear a legbrace.) - challenging flights of steps if you park at top-level carpark or drive-down, gourmet (indoor/outdoor) market though quite small, must try cafes surrounding it for next time, ferry-pier (service to/from Auckland Cbd). Went on the weekend, great find; I believe they are open more days.Written 30 July 2023
- In total about 30 stall holders, but all quality and well priced. Location was great with easy parking, nice vibe and atmosphere and most importantly was not overcrowded so you could take your time to walk around, smell and taste and actually enjoy the morning. Would go again and recommend over other markets that are either overcrowded or underwhelming.Written 24 October 2018
- Convenient shopping for home and farm, everything under one roof, reasonably priced, but sometimes the desired brand or make not be available.Written 15 November 2019
- I hadn't visited this for a number of years, so when I went last weekend, it came as a surprise to me as to how much this market had grown. I guess with the demise of La Cigale, a number of vendors probably would have moved here.
There is a wide selection of vendors, so there should be something for everyone. I stopped by someone selling mushrooms, there were bakers, grocers, Napolitan pizza, to name a few. The range seem to be more than just "Farmers", which is a good thing. I wish I had more time to explore.
Now for the down sides. It was crowded, and whilst there were plenty of parking spaces nearby, it was hard to find a park. Did I mention, it was crowded? Expect to queue for the more popular vendors. Also, a number of vendors only accepted cash or bank transfer. I think it is not unreasonable to expect vendors to accept credit cards or at a minimum EFTPOS.Written 22 August 2023
- A place where environment, society, people and Govt, all are clean and friendly.
Beauty of nature so profound.

The tourist sites are enjoyable for all age groups.
The fruites, vegetables, milk products are of great taste.Written 26 July 2016
- Gallery is well laid out and there are a lot of staff available if you need to ask anything. Great location close to Queen StWritten 11 September 2013
- Quuens Court is a shopping centre at 370 Queen Street. It has restaurants and different type of shopsWritten 6 April 2019
- I visited Artspace NZ in Auckland recently thanks to 'New perspectives' openning exhibition. Nice venue with little library abd few exhibition rooms. The place was full of people because of good timing (Friday night) and good catering (a lot of white wine). As several visitors pointed out: they're interested in social life more than contemporary art... Obviously, the organizers took it into consideration :)Written 26 September 2016
- We learned that there are different locations for the night markets - some take place in the underground space of a parking structure, others outdoors. What you get is a huge assortment of street food of all types, much of it quite appealing. And, of course, some local artisans and their craft works - go online when you get to Auckland and google "Auckland Night Markets" for current locations and hours.Written 10 April 2017
- Commercial Bay Auckland - a new destination for upmarket shopping experience, in downtown CBD, is very different from before when it was Downtown Shopping Centre. Newly built, it has stylish surroundings, quite a corporate feel, delightful views of the harbour from certain levels, there were places to luxuriously pamper, elegant stores to visit, aromas & flavours of tasty food from around the world. Like busy food-streets in South East Asia with delectable morsels - the well-populated food court, was very busy when we were at Harbour Eats. I have gait/walking challenges (stroke); I wear a legbrace. Style, Design, fine and casual dining, trendy buzzing bars, flagship stores, Commercial Bay shopping complex has something for everyone, great way to catch-up for drinks, coffee, sundowners & watch the world go by. A welcome addition to the CBD, part of the Britomart downtown shopping area.Written 11 June 2021
- The mall isn't huge but it is fairly big. Multiple levels of shops including the Warehouse on the top floor at one end and the Cinemas near the other. They also have multiple entrances including ones on Great North Road.
They do have a food court with a variety of different foods.
The mall is quite nice and clean and not too difficult to get around. Large selection of shops including quite a few dollar stores (and a $2 or less store).Written 3 January 2019
- The Strand Arcade is an old style shopping center where it preserved the elegrance from the old days. Do take the kids there, it is like travelling back in time.Written 3 March 2018
