As the seasons change, explore new outdoor and indoor activities to keep you busy around the waterfront this winter.

Extend the morning by taking a stroll in Heart of the City’s own backyard. Stroll along the quay and take the sights. Watch the boats getting out and in the marina or do some people watching. The scenery is just absolutely stunning down by the waterfront.

If you decide to walk all the way down to Wynyard Quarter, don't miss out the playground. This fantastical playground keeps the kids well entertained (espacially during hot summer days) and if you're up for a game of basketball there's always someone at the courts who is keen to play.
