Wynyard Quarter is a vibrant and bustling neighbourhood located right in the heart of Auckland’s city centre. This area has undergone a significant transformation in recent years, turning it into a hub of activity, entertainment, food, and drink. With its beautiful harbour views, inviting public spaces, and a lively atmosphere, Wynyard Quarter is quickly becoming one of the city's most popular destinations.
At the heart of Wynyard Quarter is the stunning Silo Park, a public space that serves as the perfect place to relax and take in the views of the harbour. This park features large silos that have been converted into an events space, and it's here that many of the neighbourhood’s most popular festivals and events take place, such as the popular Silo Cinema during summer, where films are projected onto the giant silos. On any given day, you'll find families picnicking; kids playing basketball and dipping their toes in the water at Karanga Plaza; friends enjoying a drink in the sun at one of the many bars; and visitors exploring the park and area.
One of the things that sets Wynyard Quarter apart is its focus on sustainability. From the green spaces that dot the neighbourhood to the many eco-friendly buildings and initiatives, this area is dedicated to preserving the environment and promoting a healthy, sustainable way of life. If you're looking to learn more about sustainability, there are plenty of opportunities to do so, including visiting Sustainable Coastlines at The Flagship Education Centre on Madden Street or checking out the Daldy Street Community Garden which occasionally run gardening workshops.
