  • What a beautiful place to relax for the day, cafes, shops, and beautiful architecture. We walked from the center of Auckland, through Victoria park and along the foreshore heritage walk into Ponsonby....  more »
  • It is a very beautiful neighborhood and is in a high place of the city. It has lots of decorating shops, clothes and snack bars. It has a food court, which has many restaurants and cafeterias. It is worth walking down the street and I felt the local climate.
