Viaduct Basin

If Auckland is the sailing capital of the world, the Viaduct Basin would be its beating heart. The expansive harbour and marina has been the venue for the world’s most prestigious yachting events, including the America’s Cup, Volvo Ocean Race, and Louis Vuitton regattas. Once an industrial port area, the Viaduct Basin has been redeveloped into a major commercial, residential, and entertainment hub, featuring one of the city’s most popular and lively dining scenes. The bustling area is filled with swanky restaurants, cafes, and nightclubs and is the best place for watching yachts coming and going.

  • Learn about New Zealand’s sailing history at the Voyager Maritime Museum, which features fascinating exhibits, a theatre, and the opportunity to sail with the museum crew on a heritage vessel in Auckland’s Waitemata harbour.
  • Check out the KZ1, an immense sloop-rigged yacht that was built for Team New Zealand’s 1988 America's Cup challenge.
  • Stroll along Princes Wharf, a working quay in the early 20th century that is now populated with stylish cafes and many excellent outdoor restaurants serving some of the best global cuisine in Auckland.

Viaduct Basin is located just to the north-west of Auckland CBD and is only a few minutes walk from the Britomart Transport Centre, the city’s public transport hub. Visitors who land at Auckland Airport can get to Viaduct Basin cheaply with the Airbus Express bus service, which terminates at the Britomart. The centre also has the timetables for ferry and train services. Taxis and car hire agencies are available at the airport, and many visitors find driving to be the most convenient way of getting around Auckland and to the surrounding areas.
