Auckland Strand Station, or simply The Strand Station, is the northern terminus for the Northern Explorer train service linking Auckland with Wellington (with stops en route at Hamilton, Otorohanga, National Park, Ohakune and Palmerston North).

It is a relatively basic station, which is surprising considering that this used to be Auckland’s sole city centre railway station prior to Britomart Transport Centre opening in 2003. Suburban trains no longer stop at The Strand Station and the station now sees only six trains per week.

The location on The Strand is not the nicest welcome to Auckland as the semi-industrial area is noted mainly for its proliferation of rental car companies, mechanics and furniture stores; however, it is only an 11-minute walk to Parnell and a 20-minute walk into the city centre.
