The usual shopping trip down Queens Street, but really love the new food court across from Britomart. I wish they would close the street down to cars so that it is all pedestrian, it would completely change the street.

The main shopping precinct by the Viaduct Harbour and Auckland's waterfront region. It is a paradise for shopping and it has cafes and restaurants galore. It is essential to walk around the area.

This street has from your very expensive to your average price shopping. Easy walking. My advice is don't forget to have a look down some of the wee side streets that run off it. Lots of car parking around but it can be expensive.

Queen Street is one of the busiest place in Auckland. You can find here almost everything that you need, from local to international shops. Bus stops and train station is also accessible within the area so it is easy to commute.

Auckland is New Zealand's most populous city, and Queen St is the main commercial thoroughfare. Queen St starts at Queen's Wharf, near the ferry terminal and goes uphill for around 3 kms (almost 2 miles). It's an interesting walk, we did it several times from top to bottom. Queen St has some interesting shops, we bought a marvellous lapis lazuli necklace from a prominent jeweller in Queens St. This is one of the most spectacular streets that I have ever traversed.

Great shopping area with interesting shops, cafes and restaurants. It could be an expensive way to start the day; however, the window shopping is not a bad idea.
There are quite a few Japanese and Korean shops in this area selling their local products.

Queen Street is a go to place to get a feel for down town Auckland. There are plenty of good shops to explore as well as food or snack places. There are little side streets that are good for food too. It is a down hill walk towards the port but a climb up going away from the port. Lots of locals, tourists and homeless people. Go for a stroll.

Auckland has so much more to offer than just Queenstreet but i suppose most cruise passengers won't look much further. Queen Street has every shop you need but I rather go around the Auckland gallery area with smaller more individual shops. Or even Orewa has clothes shops that we visit every year on our way North.

Delicious ice cream. Coffee and cakes, too. Right in the city centre. Polite staff. Just the place for a break when the shopping gets overwhelming
