Photographer's Note

The Auckland Ferry Terminal, sometimes called the Downtown Ferry Terminal or simply Ferry Building, is the hub of the Auckland ferry network that connects Auckland City with suburbs in North Shore, west Auckland, and south Auckland, and islands in the Waitematā Harbour and Hauraki Gulf.
The ferry terminal is composed of two main elements, with an older, yellow Edwardian Baroque building facing Queen Street and the city side, while the newer wharves and waiting area building (the actual ferry terminal of today) face the Waitematā Harbour.

The building usually referred to as the Auckland Ferry Terminal was designed by Alex Wiseman, and built by Philcox and Sons. Completed in 1912 on reclaimed land out of sandstone and brick with a base of Coromandel granite, it cost ₤67,944 to construct (approximately NZ$10.9 million in 2016), a large sum for the day.

Since 1982, it has had a Category I classification with the New Zealand Historic Places Trust (since renamed to Heritage New Zealand).
