“Screaming- colors gem.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 31 August 2013

I love Edwardian,everything,but this saved gem of that era is a standout on Auckland's waterfront. The 1912 structure is brilliantly used today for its original purpose which is to be your entrance and exit point for ferry excursions to Devenport,Whuheke and other Hauraki Gulf islands.
We indulged in one of its famous eateries and loved the ambiance and screaming colors . Go, ferry building.

“Nice”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 May 2013

An old impressive building housing restaurants, souvenir shops and ferry information. Characteristic to Auckland's waterfront, it's worth a look and a picture when you're on the water.

“Quaint old building”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 April 2013

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.

“Architectural Landmark on the Waterfront”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 March 2013

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.
