Close-up look at the port

Central Leader - - News -

Auck­lan­ders can get a top-notch view of be­hind-the-scenes of their port this month.

Dur­ing the third an­nual SeePort event, dou­ble-decker bus tours will give vis­i­tors a close-up look at what goes on be­hind the red fence at Ports of Auck­land.

SeePort runs over 10 days from Oc­to­ber 9 to Oc­to­ber 18.

Ports of Auck­land manag­ing di­rec­tor Jens Mad­sen says the tours will be led by port staff with many years of ex­pe­ri­ence.

“This is a great chance to get be­hind the red fence and see a close-up view of port op­er­a­tions, in­clud­ing the big­gest ‘boys toys’ in the coun­try – our cranes, strad­dles and vis­it­ing in­ter­na­tional ships.”

The free tours will run ev­ery day at 10am, noon and 2pm.

In pre­vi­ous years the SeePort events have been fully booked with more than 3000 peo­ple at­tend­ing last year.

To book phone 0800 AK PORT (0800 25-7678).
