Get to the Stadium

Transport, directions and parking? Let us help you. Luckily we're pretty central so getting here will be a breeze.

Let's get you here:

Take a stroll

Located on Waterloo Quay, the Stadium is a short walk from the central business district of Wellington. Head to the Wellington Railway Station. Once there, join the elevated walkway that takes you directly to the Stadium entrance. There are three access points to the walkway.

  • from Thorndon Quay just north of the Railway Station

  • from near Shed 21 on the Port

  • directly from the Railway platforms (8/7, 6/5, 4/3)

The walkway is 650m long with harbour views. It takes approximately 5-10 minutes to walk the length of the walkway.

Get on your bike

Bicycle stands are available at no cost on the ground floor of the Stadium car park underneath the Western pedestrian ramp. On Stadium event days only, there is also limited motorcycle parking available in this location at no charge. Greater Wellington also provides cycle lockers at the Wellington Railway Station. 

Please note Stadium event days includes events falling on a weekend, or week day where the car park is closed to commuters. Please note motorcycles are not permitted on the Fran Wilde Walkway at any time, and no bikes of any kind may park along the Fran Wilde Walkway on event days. Please contact the Stadium directly for further information.
