Attractions near the Heritage Auckland
Walk to Wynyard Quarter
Stroll to Wynyard Quarter, passing over Viaduct Basin on the newly developed Wynyard Crossing pedestrian bridge. This former industrial site has been transformed into a waterfront residential and entertainment precinct featuring grassy stretches, children’s play areas and almost three kilometres of coastal frontage. Cafes, bars and restaurants provide a relaxed and casual atmosphere.
Kick back on one of the giant wooden recliners at Karanga Plaza or take a ride on the bright red tourist trams that date back to the 1920s. With Viaduct Harbour on one side and the Auckland Harbour Bridge on the other, this unique urban maritime pocket offers great views.
Popular Ponsonby Road
Just two kilometres from your hotel is the achingly hip Ponsonby Road. This ultra-trendy strip is renowned as the home of Auckland’s best coffee (try Café Cezanne, one of the oldest and most popular cafes on the strip). Pick up some vintage and retro gear, unique collectables and edgy artwork from emerging designers at the Ponsonby Market held every Saturday.
This chic and stylish precinct is also steeped in history. Be sure to check out the former Ponsonby Post Office (on St Mary’s Bay Road), which dates back to 1911 and features grand Edwardian Baroque architecture. Other notable buildings on Ponsonby Road include St John’s Church – a Gothic-style wooden church built in the 1880s, and Allendale House, an imposing Victorian mansion built in the 1890s.
