Beautiful building right on the waterfront. Difficult to miss as it stands out due to its age. Beautifully preserved, despite its age.

Stopped here for drinks with friends to experience the coast on our first day in NZ. Travelled from San Diego CA. VERY CLASSY. Wait staff excellent, interested and attentive. Seemed to be a place for local business men and women to stop after work dressed in business casual for happy hour. Only a few tourists. Liked the energy. Beautiful views.

We decided to go out to Waiheke Island so we went to the Ferry building. It is a beautiful structure in great condition. This is a fun area with lots of restaurants and things going on.

Our experience at Queens Wharf around the Ferry Building was pretty ordinary. There are some nice scenic views out towards the sea and plenty of food for you to choose from but that's about it. Wouldn't recommend spending more than a couple of hours here.

Nothing to really see in that building but is located in the harbor where you can see and do other things. It's beside the ferry boats and other shops and restos. Nothing great really.

Great historic building that still serves Auckland and theoutlying islands. Many ferries depart here every day. There is a tourist info office here and also lockers to store your gear if you are going on a ferry ride or if you can't get into your accommodation and need a place to store it for awhile. Cafes and eateries are also... More

This building is situated on the wharf in Auckland city.can't beat the views and it is swallowed up with so many sights to see in that part of the city.
