Westpac Stadium, Wellington

(3.9/5 based on 180+ reviews on the web)
Colloquially named the Cake Tin, Westpac Stadium serves as Wellington's main sports venue and the only stadium to have hosted an Australian Football League game outside of Australia. See a variety of sports, from All Blacks rugby matches to One Day International cricket, or one of the large-capacity concerts held here. If traveling in a group, consider reserving a group tour for a behind-the-scenes look at the stadium--check the website for information and inquiries. "Lord of the Rings" film enthusiasts will appreciate the fact that in 2002 Peter Jackson recorded 30,000 cricket fans chanting here to use in the movie. Work out when and for how long to visit Westpac Stadium and other Wellington attractions using our handy Wellington vacation trip planner.

  • Went to the Wellington 7's - haven't been in a number of years and really noticed the decline within the stadium. Flooring on atrium needs to be relaid - cracked, uneven and lacking in paint. Toilets,...  more »

  • The stadium is great easy to get in and put of. Unfortunately the food is expensive and rubbish. While I accept this is a stadium either keep the crap food and drop the prices or improve the quality

  • How do you review a stadium? I've enjoyed all the events I've been to here (except when England got trashed in the cricket world cup). Beervana is a highlight. Also enjoyed Comic Con. Struggled with the sevens - wouldn't go back unless there were substantial changes. Main negative is the food. Poor quality fast food only. Expensive as well. This is Wellington people. Must try harder here.
  • Just been to my first ever rugby match. I was abit worried id get squashed on the way out but the large crowd was so nice and walked calmly out. I love the All Blacks and now I'm hooked.
  • It's ok. It gets really cold out in the open, and the architecture sometimes goes from "Concrete modern" to "Communist bleak". Better than a lot of stadia though, and the path into and out of the building has been really well thought out.
  • Fantastic stadium for a sporting event - only 4 stars due to very tightly packed crowds on entry/exit (compared to other stadiums I have visited). The design of the stadium could definitely have done with more gates and entrances spaced out around the circumference of stadium.
  • Would be better of the ocean facing side of the caketin, was completely glass. Makes for better beervana, etc experiences.
