Please be advised that the tramway is only operating Sundays and Public Holidays on a section of track at the northern end of Wynyard Quarter until the final stage of road redevelopment is completed mid-2018.
Our popular Tram Tours will be available as soon as the full loop is back in operation in 2018.


Our Group Tours have a "new look" to them as Pescado Cafe & Restaurant join with us to present three interesting and fun "Tram Tours" in Wynyard Quarter.

Waterfront Auckland's "Dockline Tram" presents our “Gardens Tour” which showcases Auckland's Wynyard Quarter and the native plantings which have transformed this former cargo wharf area into an exciting inner city environment! This “Hosted” tour is ideal for gardeners, plant lovers and those with an interest in conservation. This tour created for interest groups, features;

- Commencing at the Tram Barn, take a ride on one of our 1920s heritage trams for a 20 minute journey around Wynyard Quarter which includes an informative commentary.
- This is followed by a 30 minute leisurely guided walk. Points of special interest include; some unique species, lush gardens of native flora, an experimental man-made wetland and a “living” roof. You will also learn about the recycling and sustainability features incorporated into the Wynyard Quarter.

- Conclude the tour with morning or afternoon tea at Pescado Café, situated at the water’s edge on the North Wharf.

- You may then return by tram to the Tram Barn. Alternatively, our Host can advise other options for you to explore, including using your tram ticket to travel to the stop nearest Victoria Park, where you can enjoy a walk amongst the stately 105 year old plane trees, visit the swamp garden with giant eel and frog sculptures plus view several heritage buildings

- The Wynyard Quarter Native Gardens Tour is priced at $15 p/p. or if you prefer not to include the café, the price is $8 p/p for the tram ride and guided walk. Tour is available on Mondays, Tuesdays and Wednesdays and includes FREE off-street parking right beside the Tram Barn in Pakenham Street.

What the groups are saying;


On behalf of the North Shore Horticultural Society we would like to say a 'big thank you' for a wonderful day.

Susan gave an outstanding presentation and talk about the native plants and the surrounding area along with her helper and also Hugh & Peter with their tram commentaries.

Everyone enjoyed their morning tea at the Rushworth Cafe, then they all spent many hours exploring the Viaduct area and plan on coming back as not enough time to see it all.

What a super idea incorporating the tram with the informative walk, seems like the council has a winner here. I'll be up for it again

A great trip and so informative. I learned so much and enjoyed the whole experience and will be going again. The speaker was so knowledgeable and a nice person.

I enjoyed the tram trip, our lady guide was very informative.
There wasn't a question put to her she couldn't answer.
I would certainly go again as the whole Wynyard project completes it's different stages
The Scones and Jam went down a treat too.
