The development of Queens Wharf is part of a long term plan to turn Auckland’s waterfront into a vibrant and interesting place for people to use and enjoy, as well as better serve the tourism sector.

Key objectives for Queens Wharf include developing it as an effective and enjoyable open space for the people of Auckland and New Zealand, as well as providing a new primary terminal to support the projected growth of the cruise ship industry. Queens Wharf has also been earmarked as a place for public celebration and enjoyment of Rugby World Cup 2011.
