Description

This in-app audio tour invites you to discover Auckland's close relationship with the sea and sailing. It is a journey suited for anyone curious about the city's maritime culture and architectural landmarks. The simple narration will guide you through iconic harbors, over historic bridges, and past vibrant hotspots of this coastal gem. Starting at Westhaven Marina, you’ll get a sense of the city’s passion for sailing as you gaze upon an expansive collection of yachts. From there, the trail leads you along St. Mary's Bay with sweeping views of the Auckland Harbour Bridge, an engineering marvel since 1959. You'll weave through the green spaces of Victoria Park, catch the bustling vibe of Viaduct Harbour, and wander through the revitalized Britomart Precinct, which pulses with the city's energetic beat. The journey rounds off at the grand Ferry Building and Queens Wharf, where you can reflect on the stories heard and sights seen. Highlights include learning about local heroes who've shaped Auckland's culture; observing the historic Birdcage Tavern; and standing at the Waitemata Plaza, once the staging ground for the prestigious America's Cup. This self-guided audio experience will leave you with a profound appreciation of Auckland's unique seafaring identity and its evolution into a modern urban haven.
