The vertical steel and timber elements you see as you enter Queens Wharf next to the ferry terminal are part of a family of elements that reference the industrial and architectural forms of the working history of Queens Wharf.
The steel elements incorporate a field of lights which reference the wharf as a place or arrival and departure and the navigation/mapping associated with these journeys - by both waka and other ships.
Beneath the poles, original cast iron wharf bollards have been recovered and re-used as informal seating elements.
Grab a bike from one of our two bike hire stations along the waterfront for a fun, easy way to get around. The bikes are a great way to explore the waterfront or commute around the central city without the worry of parking.
Free for the first two hours, the bikes are located at the Quay Street end of Queens Wharf and next to the Karanga Kiosk in Wynyard Quarter.
You will need to register to use the bikes in advance so when the time comes to use the bikes you are set up and ready to go. It costs $4 to register.
Once you’re registered the first two hours of every ride on the Waterfront Bikes is free. After that, riders are charged $4 an hour to a maximum of $20 for 24 hours. A registered rider can rent up to 4 bikes at a time so it is easy for groups to hire together.

Queens Wharf is one of the best spots in the city to sit back and relax right on the water’s edge. To sweeten the deal, we have bright summer umbrellas and loungers to get comfortable and soak up the atmosphere on. From here you can take in the hustle and bustle of the port to your east and marvel at the Waitemata Harbour and Hauraki Gulf beyond.
At the Queens Street end of the wharf you will find the Queens Wharf wave seats. Designed by Architectus, the wave formation references the sparkling Waitemata Harbour.
Queens Wharf is a public space for you to enjoy. Why not practice some sunrise yoga, pilates, read a book, listen to some tunes, or simply chill out by the water side.
Fancy a game of table tennis? Or maybe giant jenga or chess are your thing. Challenge a friend to a game on your lunch break or as you pass the wharf on your way home from work. Whenever possible, we open The Cloud up to the public to take a load off and chill out with a game or two.
Please note, days and times vary depending on event bookings at The Cloud.
The Queens Wharf Kiosk is your one-stop-shop for all the information you need when visiting Queens Wharf. The kiosk is a hub of information on what's happening on Queens Wharf, cruise information, development, events and general history.

Come and explore the work by looking in windows, doors and climbing the staircase.
