Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Definitely can't miss this old beautiful building sort of resembles a church from outside. Dates back from 1912.
House restaurants and information counter for various modes of transportation while in Auckland.

Beautiful old building. Easy to use self service ticketing machines - had a wonderful return ferry trip to Devonport for dinner. The return trip gave a beautiful view of Auckland by night.

Perhaps not worth a walk down to the wharf just to see this but a beautiful old building if you are in the area or planning to take a ferry. There are touchscreen ticket machines to self serve but also helpful staff on hand - good because I got confused at not seeing a ticket route called Devonport.
Electronic screens confirm the upcoming sailings and which pier to go to and this was all very clear. Good prices too.

Located at the bottom of queen street, on the harbour is this lovely structure, which is the main ferry terminal, definitely worth a visit.

An iconic building and a reminder of the wonderful architecture of the past. Stands proudly by the waterfront and is a great example of Auckland’s history

Located at Queens Wharf, the ferry building is such a striking old building and renovated well! It had 4 clocks high up near the steeple facing each direction. The building was red brick with yellow accents - a glorious colour against the blue of the water and the skyscrapers. Taking advantage of the sea views they had a restaurant up on the first level. You can’t miss it if you’re down near the wharf.

The Fery Building is located in the auckland CBD and as the name suggest is where the local ferries depart and arrive. Its also a port where you will see cruise ships docked.

The Ferry Builing has a new and old part.

The Old Building is constructed of sandstone in the Baroque style and isdated to 1912.

Its a great spot to walk around and there are several retaurants and a place to get some Italian Gellato.

The Edwardian building was built in 1912 of sandstone and brick and is very impressive. Most of the ferry business is carried out in the newer building, this building has shops and cafes/restaurants. Well worth a 30-minute wander around.

This is a lovely old building that still functions as a ferry terminal ticketing area and offers restaurants and cafes. The regular ferries are off to one side and you can use the AT Hop Metro card for these. Excursion ferries depart from the other side of the building.

The Ferry Building on the water front is an iconic building and contains several restaurants and cafes overlooking the ferry terminal where you can book tickets. Plenty of seating to just sit and eat an ice-cream while watching the ferries come and go. There is a lot of road/building work by the front of the building at the moment, so not very photogenic from that side!
