Viaduct Harbour - PHOTOGRAPHER COMMENT
Taken from the end of Viaduct Harbour in Auckland, this virtual tour shows some of the luxury flats and apartments that line the marina and the yachts moored here. On a sunny day it is a very pleasant walk from the TIC.

Viaduct Harbour (or Viaduct Basin) in Acukland has been redeveloped from a commercial harbour to a marina surrounded mostly by upmarket, luxury apartments, offices and restaurants. These moorings were originally built so that small ships, called lighters could unload goods from larger vessels moored in the Waitamata harbour channel. However, this scheme failed and the wharfs were used for local fishing vessels until the area was recently redeveloped.
Redevelopment of Viaduct Harbour took place in the late 1990's and around the harbour is a promenade linking it with Freemans Bay, Eastern Viaduct Harbour and Princes Wharf. In the middle of the harbour is the Floating Pavilion conference venue. The main Auckland Tourist Information Centre and National Maritime Museum attraction are about 5 minutes walk away.
