If you're looking for a vibrant and exciting area to explore in Auckland’s city centre, Federal Street should definitely be on your list. This bustling street is packed with fantastic dining options, as well as some unique experiences that you won't find anywhere else.
Federal Street is perhaps best known for the SkyCity Auckland complex, which dominates the street's skyline with its towering Sky Tower. But there's much more to Federal Street than just SkyCity. This street is a foodie's paradise, with an incredible selection of restaurants offering cuisine from all around the world. If you're in the mood for fine dining, you might want to check out Masu by Chef Nic Watt or The Grill, which serves up some of the best steaks in the city. Alternatively, if you're looking for something a bit more casual, you can grab a burger and a pint at the Federal Delicatessen, which has a fun retro vibe. There are plenty of other great spots to discover as well.
Federal Street isn't just about food – it's also a great spot for unique experiences and a night out. The SkyCity complex is home to the SkyCity Casino, which is open 24/7 and offers a range of table games and slot machines. And if you're looking for an adrenaline rush, take an elevator to the top of the Sky Tower for stunning views of the city, or try the SkyWalk or SkyJump. For something a bit more low-key, you can check out the Sugar Club, a cosy bar that serves up some of the tastiest cocktails in the city with panoramic views.
If you're a fan of rugby, the biggest attraction on Federal Street is undoubtedly the All Blacks Experience. This interactive museum takes you on a journey through the history of New Zealand rugby, from the early days to the present. You'll get to learn about the legends of the game, as well as try your hand at some of the skills involved in playing rugby.
One of the most unique experiences on Federal Street is Weta Workshop Unleashed, which is a must-visit for fans of movies like Lord of the Rings and The Hobbit. This immersive exhibit showcases the incredible work of the Weta Workshop team, who created some of the most memorable creatures and characters in these beloved films. You'll get to see props, costumes, and models up close, and even try your hand at some of the special effects techniques used in the movies.
