Ponsonby top sights

  • Become a local and hang out in the Ponsonby (Auckland inner city suburb) amidst its cafes, restaurants and shops
  • Take a ferry ride on the bustling harbour to Devonport and find mouth watering gourmet chocolate
  • Explore Waiheke Island with its wineries and craft breweries and watch the Auckland skyline light up in the sunset

Let’s hang out in Ponsonby, Food courts with multicultural taste delights, Prego Italian made easy with hand crafted noodles softly coated in cream rich pesto sauce and a tiramus dessert worthy of any bistro. Wander along the main stretched out Richmond Road and enjoy the sheer variety of outlets, local designer geer, second hand bookshop, cafes jostling with a general grocery store and a stunning homeware store next to a tempting shoe shop.

All the while there are delicious mouth watering places to rest awhile from:

  • Duck Island Ice-cream
  • Prego Italian cafe & bar
  • Rustic pizza
  • Ponsonby Foodcourt (warning, you might not ever leave)



Pop into THE OPEN BOOKSHOP (Ponsonby) a fascinating second hand bookshop.

And Ponsonby is definitely the village within a city, self-described as:

“Ponsonby is Auckland’s always-on mixing pot of cheap eats, posh nosh, in-your-face art, world-class shopping and innovative business that famously banded together to ban the Golden Arches. We’re Auckland’s urban village, where Chilli the Pomeranian turns looks, haute couture turns heads, and over a hundred bars, restaurants and cafés turn tables to create the kaleidoscopic heart of Tāmaki Makaurau. Eat drink shop repeat – that’s why we Love Ponsonby”
