“Shows more of Wellington”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 December 2013

On one hand, Wellington feels like 2 different cities and it needs some "bridge" to bring them together.
We stayed by the Harbour and we felt a totally different experience - it was only when we went walking and crossed the bridge and saw other parts of the city that we realised there was more to the city than our immediate area.

“A Bridge to somewhere”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 October 2013

This is too some a way to cross the road safely but to many locals this is a place to take time out to relax and enjoy not only the views that wellington has to offer but also to watch the people as they go about their business, make the time to explore this bridge and what it has to offer.

“It's just a bridge.....”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 October 2013

To me, this is 'just a bridge'. A way to get from Civic Square to the lovely wharf area where you can start your walk around the harbour. You can probably appreciate the bridge more for photos from the road beneath. It's wood and sort of ethnic-orientated.. Takes about 30 seconds to walk across.

“A special place to many Wellingtonians”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 October 2013

More than just a way to dodge traffic, great for people watching and an excellent photo stop. An excellent link between the iconic Civic Square and boat-shed lagoon. The locals are regulars, visitors would be silly to miss it.

“A convenient connection of city to sea”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 March 2013

The bridge connects the city to the sea. So convenient and lots to do when you get to the 'sea'. Particularly pleasant in summer when you're in the sunshine.
