We got off at bastion point on the hop on hop off bus, wonderful views of the city and mission bay. The memorial is with a look. You can walk down the path to mission beach, about a 15 minute walk, steep downgrade but difficult walk back.

This is one of the stops on the hop on hop off bus tour. The area offers great panoramic views of the bay, islands and downtown Auckland. We were able to get off the bus, walk around the area and get back on the next bus in plenty of time.

We went to this location on the hop on hop off bus and then walked around to the Aquarium as the steps down into Mission Bay were closed for repairs.
