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...More

I googled 'red light district in Auckland' and 'K'Road' showed up. I walked along K'Road in the broad day light and there were lots of small grocery shops, eateries and cafes. Recommended to check it out.

Visited K-Road a couple times, great shops for the day time and few great restaurants and bars for the night. Night little strip with a bit of everything.

K-Road is looking more disheveled these days, I can't understand why because it's in a great spot at the top of Auckland, and could have been on the tourists' "must do" list. We went as a couple on a Sunday morning, to St Kevins Arcade....More
