Westpac Stadium, Wellington

3.9
#1 of 15 in Fun & Games in Wellington
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.

  • Great venue. Reasonable amount of bar and food areas. Like most games there is always a chance of waiting awhile for food and drinks.  more »

  • Great stadium, even when at capacity with 60k people packed in, access it still easy. Great design, well thought out for foot traffic and a convenient train line right to the stadium. The only downside is the food quality for its price.
  • Unique "cake tin" design stadium that houses 60+ thousand fans. Located in the capital of New Zealand, the stadiums on the edge of Wellington city. Close to the train station and offers exceptional rest rooms, parking and general space.
  • The venue holds rugby matches pretty well despite no roof which is a bit silly considering what the whether can be like in Wellington. Would be great to see the stadium rebuilt with a bigger capacity.
  • Had an awesome experience at Westpac when I visited. The transport links into the stadium are good and it is only a short walk back into the city. The facilities are great and the view from most seating to the pitch is great. One of the better stadiums I have been to.
  • A great stadium for viewing sport. Easy to get in and out of even when there's a sell out. Only downside is the food can be a let down but this has got better recently.
