Viaduct Harbour information
Lonely Planet review
Once a busy commercial port, the Viaduct Harbour was given a major makeover leading up to the 1999/2000 and 2003 America’s Cup tournaments. It’s now a fancy dining and boozing precinct for the boat-shoes brigade, and guaranteed to have at least a slight buzz any night of the week. Historical plaques, interesting sculpture and the chance to gawk at millionaires’ yachts make it a pleasant place for a stroll.
