We started our "trek" through Auckland here (we were staying at the Mercure).
It's nice to walk around to see all the different yachts, sail boats, fishing boats, harbour bridge, Emirates New Zealand America's Cup base, old America's cup (year 2000) racing boats, the Events Center.
Can lease sailing boats. Can take a ride on the old (year 2000) Emirates New Zealand America's Cup racing boats.
There are many bars and restaurants, from cheap to high price.
Some modern buildings hosting banks.
It's also a good spot to take pictures of Auckland downtown and Sky Tower.
Not as impressive as the waterfronts in Sidney and Cape Town but still a nice place to start Auckland's visit.
