Summary

The Ferry Building is one of the most imposing port buildings in New Zealand, and testimony to the importance of water transport in early twentieth-century Auckland...Erected by the Auckland Harbour Board in 1909-1912, this ornate structure was intended to be a focus for the extensive ferry network entering and leaving the city. Now registered with the Historic Places Trust, it provides a powerful reminder of the importance of ferry transport in the early twentieth century, and the role played by the wharves in the social and commercial life of Auckland...The Auckland Ferry Building is now home to a number of cafés and restaurants...Adjacent to the Ferry Building is the Auckland Ferry Terminal. From here ferries depart to a number of locations around the Waitemata and Hauraki Gulf including Devonport and Waiheke.
