Takapuna TourismTakapuna tourism witnessed an amazing year 2017 in terms of international cruise visitors spending their time beachside. Located in Auckland’s North Shore, Marketview report shows a record of $6 million rise in visitor spending in Takapuna in the last 12 months ending June 30 of this year.


Thus, the total spending in the shopping centre for the year comes to an approximate $220 million.


Association chief executive Terry Holt explained that the immense increase was because of the inflow of visitors in the area. Credit goes thanks to the efforts of seizing cruise liner spending by welcoming busloads of visitors over the Harbour Bridge.


The initiative was the brainchild of Halt. He created collaboration with ID Tours, an Auckland based business that handles ground operations for cruise liners, and chalking out the day excursions to the North Shore beach for the groups recently docked.


Americans comprise a major part among cruise visitors followed by Aussies and Brits. The local revenue has been boosted by the exchange of dollars that took place lately, contributing to 150,000 additional transactions in comparison to the last year which shows a 26.2 percent growth in purchases.


Locals comprise two-thirds of the spending; with hospitality being the king, taking 36 percent of the spending.
