Auckland Central Business District

From its high-rise heart to the statement architecture spanning the waterfront, Auckland’s city centre shines.

Auckland’s CBD is a tight-knit weave of streets that hums with life; turn any corner and a brand new side of the city unfurls before your eyes. Get swept up with Auckland’s love affair with water on the harbourfront or head downtown to experience the city’s distinctive touch. Heritage buildings host homegrown designers and artists, while award-winning restaurants dish out the latest foodie experiments. Better yet, the city’s two universities keep the pubs busy from p.m. to a.m.
