Auckland Things to Do: 389 reviews and 612 photos
What do you do with a run down marina? Renovate it into high priced restaurants and apartment buildings aimed for the posh downtown nightlife crowd, of course!
With major sporting events like the America's Cup yachting race, the All Blacks rugby matches versus Australia and the world, amongst others, this area has become quite the international social scene now. There are also high end souvenir shops and the Maritime museum.
Enjoy the bars, restaurants, and nice waterview! If you make it down here around the daytime, you can also enjoy sailing a real America's Cup yacht!
Address: Viaduct Basin
It touts itself as one of New Zealand's premier attractions, which is something that should not be taken lightly. After all, this is coming from the country that gave us zorbing, jetboating, and most importantly bungee jumping. Taking all that into consideration, the Auckland Skytower looks like Seattle's Space Needle from afar, but is much more than that in person.
Skytower actually has several parts to it... a casino for the oxygen deprived slot machine generation, fine dining in a rotating restaurant for the foodies, and a couple adrenaline injecting sport activities like the Skyjump and Skyclimb!
For those more on a normal tourism adventure, stick with the observation deck, which is assured to give you the best vantage point in the entire city!
Address: Cnr Federal & Victoria Streets, Auckland.
