Ship dock only a 5-10 min easy walk to town centre Plenty to do here. Once again it is easy to see some of the sights without booking tours from ship. Kelly Tarlton Underwater world entry $33NZ and they have a free shuttle pick up across road from Information centre at the dock. Give yourself plenty of time as it can be very busy, especially if it is a weekend or public holiday.
Walk up to the Sky tower from port is around 15min for great views if it is a clear day, even though entry was a little expensive to go all the way to top at $28NZ p/p
