Auckland CBD - Accessible/Easy Access Accommodation & Activities
Auckland CBD Accessibility
Auckland CBD accessibility is a case of some parts yes, some no. Yes, is all along the waterfront from the Cloud, all around the Viaduct basin and on to the very good access around the Wynyard Quarter. Most surfaces are level and even and crossing places across Quay street to the city well formed.
Uptown around the Aotea square, the Aotea Centre and Auckland Town Hall is all also easily accessible. Queen Street â€“ the main street running through downtown Auckland rises slowly from the waterfront with good crossings and mostly enough width to mean people moving a little slowly like some of you might are quite OK.
But on either side of Queen sloping up the CBD valley sides things get difficult. Slope is one problem, construction activity obstructing footpaths is another. So are some pretty substandard street crossing ramps. Itâ€™s all unpredictable. There is minimal usable access parking. One worth noting though is on High Street directly across from the magnificent Art Gallery. There is steepness all around here but if you can get this one space the gallery is right there for you.
