Shed 10

The Shed is a Heritage-listed building which for much of its life was a warehouse used by ships importing and exporting goods to and from New Zealand. In 2012, Shed 10 underwent a thoughtful restoration that retains its heritage elements while providing the facilities you’d expect in a premium events space and primary cruise ship terminal.

The ground floor retains the Shed’s robust industrial character with a concrete floor, steel columns, and exposed beams. The upper floor is warm and rich in character and detail with timber flooring, exposed steel trusses, and a gabled ceiling with occasional skylights.
