Victoria Square

Victoria Square, first known as Market Square or Market Place, was the centre of town life until the 1870s.

As a predominantly green space, Victoria Square is a natural gathering point in the central city. Its notable landmarks include the Captain James Cook statue, Queen Victoria statue, H. L. Bowker Fountain, and the Victoria Square Poupou. It also features the country's oldest cast iron and stone bridge, now known as the Hamish Hay Bridge. Victoria Square has always been an important place for people. It has been used as a place to gather, exchange, have a voice, to rest and for events like Bread and Circus - World Buskers Festival and the Moon Festival.
