About Eden Park

New Zealand’s National Stadium, Eden Park, was opened in 1903 and is the largest stadium in the country with a capacity of just under 50,000 permanent seats and the capability to expand to 60 000 with additional temporary seating.

In many ways, the spiritual sporting home of Aotearoa New Zealand sport, this historic venue has hosted many iconic moments, including the 1987 and 2011 Rugby World Cup finals, the 2015 ICC Cricket World Cup semi-final and various matches for the 2022 ICC Women’s Cricket World Cup and 2021 Women’s Rugby World Cup postponed to 2022. The venue has also been home to major cricket and rugby matches and hosts some of Wellington Phoenix A-League matches.

In 2023 Eden Park hosted the Opening Ceremony and 9 matches for the FIFA Women’s World Cup Australia & New Zealand 2023™, including the Opening Match and a Semi-Final.

In 2021 Eden Park was granted resource consent to host 6 concerts per annum. In April 2021 the venue hosted homegrown chart toppers Six60 to a record-breaking sell-out show. The venue continues to host a myriad of high-profile international acts.

Visiting Kingsland

A short walk away from the Eden Park stop is Kingsland Village. A busy urban thoroughfare, Kingsland features quirky shops and an excellent array of bars and restaurants. If you’re here in the morning you’ll find a good choice of cafes, serving breakfast and brunch, where you can join the locals in sipping a quality brew while you watch the world go by.

The neighbourhood is dotted with a number of historic buildings – nudging up alongside classic Kiwi weatherboard bungalows. To learn more about the origins of these places, look out for the plastic plaques attached to their walls – you can scan these with your smartphone to find out more about life in this neighbourhood in years gone by.

In keeping with the arty vibes, the street is scattered with a handful of shops selling unique gifts and goods made by New Zealand craftspeople. From jewellery to homewares to natural health and beauty products – it’s a good place to buy a little something that’s unique to these parts.
