What could be a truly "queen" street is largely used by workers commuting up and down, or stopping for a snack. There are also hundreds of shops oriented at the tourist market, none of which are particularly special. In the last 5-6 years there has been an explosion in the number of beggars as well. It's pretty safe, even on... More

At Aotea Park there is an entertainment centre, there's the Civic Theatre, a department store and the Imperial Arcade near the bottom. Lots to do on main... More

I really dislike walking on this street, and now use parallel streets whenever possible. Aggressive beggars, thoughtless people on their phones, crowds........I could go on!!!

Mostly, it's surprising how quiet it is for a so called major city main St, which is nice. It's in the centre of Auckland.

Once you find Queen Street you can access anywhere in the city! There are excellent shops of all kinds, including supermarkets (that are a bit hidden!) cafes and take away food shops. The top of Queen Street takes you to the amazing Art Gallery. We found some of the tourist gift shops offered good value compared with others in different... More

Queen Street is the busiest street at CBD. The street is very long , so be aware whether your location is upper or lower downtown, as you need to walk 10 to 15 mins from upper to lower distance, depends where you stay. There are lots of shops and dining options on Queen Street , but there are no surprise.... More

Main street running through the CBD and is full of a big city buzz with lots of shops, fast food eateries, traffic and people!

Queen Street is a great shopping location in Auckland. It is one of the busiest streets in the city centre, with plenty of cafes and shops. There is a great transport network around the city, with plenty of bus stops.

Visited here in 2012 and since then the area has gone down in my estimation. You can find some decent shops but then you get the usual world wide chain stores and some cheap and nasty shops selling poor quality goods.

Queen street is the main street of Auckland city. Car, people, building and shop fill along. It passed through few suburb. But only taxi, car and buses run through. No train no light rail.
