Interesting places

The Lighthouse is a new public artwork by New Zealand artist Michael Parekowhai. As a gift to the city, Barfoot & Thompson funded the commission of the artwork. Its exterior is in the form of a 1:1 scale 1950s family home and the interior artwork features an installation of light. You can come and explore the work by looking in windows, doors and climbing the staircase!

Enjoy views and go for a walk around the Queen’s Wharf

Queens Wharf is one of the best spots in the city to sit back and relax right on the water’s edge. Enjoy the views of the busy waterfront, see cruise ships, boats and yachts parked around it. Sit under bright umbrellas and have a snack, looking over the Harbour Bridge and North shore or looking back at the busy Auckland City Centre.
