Ten spectacular dining experiences on North Wharf
The jewel in the crown of Wynyard Quarter's waterfront dining experience is the spectacular North Wharf. The only north facing wharf along Auckland's waterfront, North Wharf is a sun drenched beacon of activity.
Nestled comfortably between Karanga Kiosk and Silo Park, North Wharf is made up of three separate buildings - an east and west wing centered around the historic Old Red Shed. The once weathered original building has been spruced up, but its character maintained, including its famous red doors.

History of North Wharf
Once called the ugly duckling of Auckland's Waterfront, the area know as North Wharf has undergone a jaw-dropping transformation.
Centered around the Old Red Shed was the original North Wharf building, dating back to the 1930s. It was one of three cargo sheds at the western end of Auckland's waterfront that stored goods as they were unloaded from boats moored at North Wharf before being dispatched on to trucks or trains on the shed's south side. The weathered building has been spruced up, but its character maintained, including its famous red doors.
The interior of the Old Red Shed reflects its former uses, with the original timber frame containing marks and paint from over the years still visible. Only some ceiling partitions were removed during the refurbishment.
