Getting to our venues
Getting to the theatre on time can be very stressful. Here are some tips and tricks to assist you and make your life easier from our Auckland Live team.
There are a number of car parks near all city venues. Keep in mind that sometimes all of our venues are filled with events, so it’s good to have a backup plan.
Pre-paid parking at The Civic car park
A limited number of pre-paid parking spaces are available on Level 2 of The Civic car park, situated beneath Aotea Square. Entry is via Greys Avenue only.
You can only purchase a pre-paid parking voucher at the time you purchase your event tickets. You can also add a pre-paid car park voucher to an existing ticket order by calling the Ticketmaster Call Centre on 0800 111 999 or by visiting the Aotea Centre Box Office.
Please note: Pre-paid carparks must be purchased at least 48 hours prior to the event date.
Pre-paid parking is available from 6pm only.
Takapuna (North Shore)
Public parking around our stadiums is very limited. Traffic can also be a challenge for big events with tens of thousands of people arriving at the same time. A smart option is driving to a train station and getting the train to the stadium.
Western Springs Stadium
There is very limited parking around Western Springs Stadium. If you’re not keen to take the bus, pre-plan an area to park within walking distance. One of the great things about Western Springs is the location in the central suburbs – you might even be able to park at a friend’s house.
Mt Smart Stadium
There’s parking in the streets around Mt Smart Stadium and some enterprising locals open up their car parks for a fee where you can park at your own risk. The biggest key to getting a car park near Mt Smart Stadium is getting there early.
QBE Stadium (North Harbour)
Visit the QBE Stadium website for full public transport and parking information.
Visit Auckland Transport or download the AT app to see what public transport options are available from your house.
For city centre venues, the best spot to meet a taxi is the Bledisloe Street car park at 24 Wellesley Street West.
