Wynyard Quarter

The place where the city meets the sea

Immediately to the west of Auckland’s Viaduct is Wynyard Quarter, a 36 hectare area undergoing an exciting 25-year urban transformation. 

There’s lots to see and plenty to do –take in the view from the gantry in Silo Park, shoot some hoops at the Playspace, dip your toes in the water at Karanga Plaza, admire the Wind Tree sculpture and marvel at the super yachts, watch fish being unloaded, then enjoy the freshest seafood or a cup of coffee at the water’s edge at one of the cafes or restaurants along North Wharf.

There is a regular programme of events and activities going on in the Wynyard Quarter, from the summer programme of movies and cinema in Silo Park to free kids Workshops on the Wharf.  If you are keen to learn more about the future developments for the area, pop into the Karanga Kiosk where the friendly team is there to help.

Wynyard Quarter showcases leading urban design and architecture and has won a number of national and international awards including the top honour at The Waterfront Centre (USA) for excellence on the Waterfront.
