Jim’s Accessibility Comments:

Auckland’s Viaduct Harbour wharf is a huge area which was developed not that long ago in the late 1990’s as a mixed use project of apartments and restaurants and is stunningly beautiful and modern. As a centre of activity of the 2000 America’s Cup, hosted by the Royal New Zealand Yacht Squadron, the area has enjoyed considerable popularity with locals and foreign visitors. It’s very level throughout the waterfront area with broad concrete walkways and very wheelchair friendly.

There are multiple restaurants and retail shops, the ferry terminal, Maritime Museum and the cruise ship port. They are all wheelchair friendly. Take a stroll south along the wharf on the waterfront, then turn right onto Queen St and shop in the main Auckland retail shopping district.

We had dinner down on the wharf one night and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. When they developed this wharf a few years ago, they really did it right for wheelchair accessibility.
