RESEMBLES THE SYDNEY HARBOUR.

The Auckland Harbour Bridge is a massive bridge over the Waitemata Harbour in Auckland. It is about two thirds of a mile long and it is the second longest bridge in New Zealand. Good views.

Auckland Harbor Bridge has suffered substantial damage. The bridge is now only four lanes. Allow 4-5 hours may be more to cross. Check NZTA online for updates. Travel late at night or very very early in the morning. A large 22-meter steel beam was damaged by collision with a huge truck. The repair, the patch up may last till December 2020. From time to time the bridge might be completely closed.

Not as impressive as the Sydney Harbour Bridge, but still worth seeing

The thing I like most about this widened bridge is what the locals call the extra traffic lanes: "The Nippon Clip-on." Why? because it was a Japanese bridge-building company that showed how the bridge could be widened more cheaply than adding extra support piers.

We toured by the bridge and saw it from various angles. It is a sight to see. We did not go over the bridge, but was on a hop on hop off tour and it took us right by the bridge. Couldn't get a better view of the bridge.

We were travelling from Auckland airport to North Shore and had difficulty positioning in the correct lane - particularly when it divided into two sets of two lanes. Fortunately, some patient locals let us change lanes

Walk over the Bridge.

We had been meaning to go for a long time and eventually got it together. There was a Lot involved but all well worth it. It was amazing looking up at the Sky Tower while on the top of the bridge. Would I do it again, Absolutely.

Awesome History Tour!
Oct 2019
It's funny because when I saw the bridge from afar in person, it didn't look that high, but when you are on it and see people bungee jumping from under it, you quickly change your mind. This is such a fantastic tour! You learn a lot of history about the building of the bridge, just how much the city relies on it (from it carrying the main water source, to transportation). You are in a suit that keeps you warm and dry (we were lucky to have the rain stop long enough for our tour). This is definitely something anyone can do (if you're afraid of heights, just be a little brave).

The only thing I was not a fan of, were the pictures. I didn't think the pictures that were taken were very good. We didn't have the option to purchase the one we likes (you have to buy the package), so we did it for the memories.

The free shuttle is definitely a plus- picked us up from the Sky Center and since we were the only ones going back, our driver was nice to divert to a pub we wanted to try (since it was raining again).
