Wouldn't go out of my way to see but it is the best access way across the main road from the civic centre down to the harbour. It's a quirky wooden & concrete bridge that has an unusual thrown together look and lots of seating areas with sea views.

Lovely to look over the lagoon from, this quirky bridge links the civic square with the waterfront the kids love it, and it shortens the wander from Lambton Quay end of town to Te Papa

This is such a great design that manages to link history with the present and somehow look towards the future. The bridge you gives a little elevation for photos as you wander along the waterfront. From here head to Te Papa for a the wonderful museum or go the other way and hire a kayak for an hour or two... More

This is a nice Bridge taking you to the Wellington Boat Club and some nice cafes. I think a lot of people just think it's a stupid Bridge but it's actually nice with some nice wooden carvings. Whoever did it obviously spent a lot of time and effort on the bridge. It is a true piece of art

Built and located as a bridge, connects the city and the waterfront or the sea, or in other words a separation features between the city and the sea, this bridge is renowned of its beautiful and meaningful Maori Crafts on the bridge parapets. A good place to stop and admire the beauty of Wellington waterfront from the bridge, Not too... More

The Wellington waterfront is awesome! (Why hasn't other waterfront cities like Auckland and others haven't copied the concepts???) Anyway Wellington has created a stunning entrance to its harbour - local Maori carver/sculpturer has mixed wood with metal to give a permanent display. Take the 1+ hours to explore this waterfront area - Wellington puts on incredible blue sky days, (wind... More
