- Relax and watch the Auckland Anniversary Regatta from our new End of Wharf area, where kids can enjoy our free knot inspired activities and games in the sun.

- Drop in to our Macramé Workshop make and take home a macramé friendship band with our lovely hosts in the Eastern Viaduct Car Park.

- Take part in the Maritime Museum's Sea Traders interactive game, where you will be immersed in a world of trade and explore the history of the port.
