Take a self-guided walk and learn more about the dramatic history of the stretch of waterfront marked by Ports of Auckland's magnificent red fence.

This walk is self-guided and can be taken at any time convenient to you.

Pick up a brochure at the New Zealand Maritime Museum between 9am and 5pm, and make your way along the fence towards the Ports of Auckland Building.
