Lovely piece of architecture worth a stop and look on your trip across Wellington. Good route to access the harbour on your way to Oriental parade or turn left towards more bars.

This bridge is not pretty nor fancy, but I liked it since it looked very unique. It is a link between city centre to waterfront.

Quite an interesting design as you stroll through the area, it certainly catches your eye and encourages you to walk closer to take a better look. We walked around and took a few photos from different areas. This is more of an architectural bridge than...More

This wooden (strange) ‘art’ bridge is the link between the city (civic centre) and the waterfront. In fact it’s just a bridge.
