K Road has traditionally been the seedy, louche side of Auckland for decades. I can remember my mum telling how, as a young woman during the War, a policeman approached her on K Rd one night and advised her to leave due to the dangers on K Rd! La plus ca change, la plus le meme chose, I guess! I love K Rd. If you're wanting grubby omniuim gatherum nightclubs then this is the strip for you. If you just want a fun, quirky day out in an Auckland with a point of difference, then this is also the place for you. There is everything quirky and odd ball you could possibly think of, with lots of amazing eateries of every style and price point. It's also a good hub for retro and vintage shopping.
It's really easy to get to from Auckland Centra. because it's on the red circle bus line which doesa city loop and costs a dollar. Bargain!More
