RallyNZ Shows Off Queens


Now that Queens Wharf is opening up the public, it’s interesting to see how it feels with its first major event  - hosting Rally New Zealand.

Queens Wharf is be the base and main service area for all rally teams during the event.

There’s not a lot to see apart from a few cars being tinkered with by mechanics -and parts of the wharf are off bounds to the public.

But it does feel good to be wandering around on the wharf enjoying the sun and having something to occupy your attention, against the stunning backdrop of the busy Waitemata harbour boat and ferry traffic.

Queens Wharf is a very relaxed open public space on a sunny Auckland day.

Even the much-debated sheds come in useful for Rally NZ officials.
