A historic old building near the ferry terminal that has recently been strengthened and houses some shops and restaurants. It has a 'stand out' feature around it that catches your attention as you move closer to the CBD by ferry.

Beautiful building well preserved. Convenient location to book tours, day trips and catch the ferry to various locations across the bay to explore and enjoy Auckland.

Modern cities by their very nature tend to be full of modern buildings, so this is a stand-out exception and thankfully still being put to good use. From the moment you see it as you approach the harbour you know exactly where you are, so make some time and at least go stare at it for a while.

If you are fans of historical architecture or photography, the Ferry Building is a nice break from the central business district (downtown) megastructures. Additionally, it was clean and housed several little shops, restaurants (Botswana Butcher was very nice), and of course the means to board the ferries. For such a busy area, the grounds were clean and well kept. So, if you are heading to the Ferry Building to catch a ferry, stop for a bit or longer and admire the history among the modernism that has engulfed Auckland's CBD.
