Great scenic walk alongside the marina to the bridge. There is a cafe ‘Buoy’ when you get there. You can also do a guided bridge walk to the top of the bridge if you’re a thrill seeker.
This long-standing bridge and city icon doubled its lanes from 4 to 8 and recently added pedestrian walkways as well as a special bridge-climbing adventure for most ages and abilities.
Auckland Harbour Bridge connects Auckland City with the North Shore. If you are a daredevil, you can bungy jump off the harbour bridge for a 40m plunge. If you aren't up for a bungy you can also walk across the top of the bridge.
With unparalleled access to the Auckland Harbour Bridge, this is not just the most unique Auckland attraction; this is the only Bridge Climb in all of New Zealand. Put another way, you’ve simply gotta do it!
