Right across the country, New Zealanders are reconnecting with their urban waterfronts. As a small island nation, with 15,134 km of coast, our beaches, rivers and lakefronts are intrinsic to what it is to be ‘kiwi’.
It is only relatively recently that we have begun to celebrate and treasure the beauty and potential that exists within our urban waterfronts. What we have achieved in Wynyard Quarter has opened up the possibilities to Aucklanders, yet there is still so much to be done.
Throughout New Zealand there are projects underway to better connect our cities to the water edge.
This article from New Zealand weekly current affairs magazine ' New Zealand Listener' goes someway to illustrate the view and movement toward waterfront regeneration in New Zealand.
We look forward to welcoming you in November so you can see what’s happening in Auckland, and possibly further afield for yourself.
