However, most of the ferry routes are operated within the contemporary terminal building on Quay Street. From here you can sail to the Hauraki Gulf Islands within 25-40 minutes, depending on your destination.
The terminal is a short walk from the Britomart railway station and bus exchange. There are also Air Bus services operating transfers from Auckland Airport to Queens Wharf every 10 minutes.
