Ferry Building Reviews & Ratings

  • A hub for ferries interconnecting to the nearby islands and a popular historical landmark, it's something that Auckland city still has until all those years. There is a famous gelato shop and high end restaurant, followed by with some souvenir and honey shops in the back. It's worth a visit, especially if you're on a lime zooming around.

  • Easy to find where you have to go. Gelato shop well worth a visit

  • Great views of, within and through this remarkable early Auckland building. Plenty of food outlets ensures that it is always crowded. The ferry building needs a further upgrade. The layout for ferry departures is confusing. And the mix of heritage architecture and passenger flow needs a clearer design. However, this is a people place and is always enjoyable to travel through.

  • I walk there or around there most days, very convenient for bus or ferry great views of the AK

  • An old building at the waterfront of Auckland's downtown, in front of the downtown ferry wharf. After it got renovated and strengthen, it's now houses several upscale restaurants; unfortunately, the best feature of those restaurants are the view. Especially with their price tags. Luckily some of the non-restaurant vendors are quite good.
