Seats For A Queen


It’s only a year ’til Party central happens at Queens Wharf - and while the red gates are open and the wharf declared the People’s Wharf, its looking pretty dismal.

The only change is some seating has been put in alongside the water so old men can stare at the sea.

And for rugby hoons who get drunk and fall into Waitemata Harbour, there are some life rings!

Aucklanders have yet to discover Queens Wharf for a quiet chillout moment  - but it is winter as it will be for RWC2011.
Meanwhile The Shed is open so you people can wonder in and ponder its use.

    It may not be de-luxe, but I actually like the fact that it is open. Somehow I had assumed that people would have to wait until next year to be even allowed on, except for some open days as they have already had.

    I think people just don’t realise that it is open. I have seen the gates open when walking past but there is nothing to say “come on in” and most people are probably just so used to the red gates being shut they don’t think about going there.

    Why don’t they just hurry up and build something?

    Because of some little disputes about the “something” part of your sentence ;-)

    I wish someone would pull their head out of there arse and look at options like on this page…

    there are plenty of them lying around auckland and with some decent sand blasting and paint, I’m pretty sure someone is smart enough to do something like these things on this page.

    I really do like the boat terminal, kinda fitting really.

    I’ve always wanted to build my house out of sea containers.
