Are you in a wheelchair or do you require mobility assistance? Find out further information on how we can help in the Accessibility section.

If you need to purchase a mobility parking pass, please request this by filling in our Mobility Parking form. Advance purchase needs to be completed at least one week prior to the day of the event. Please note once purchased, this is non-refundable.

An area for disabled parking on the ground floor is set aside at events.

From the ground floor, a golf cart is available to transport you up to a set down area near the Stadium entrance. A disabled Mobility pass by itself does not entitle you to park at the Stadium. Stadium event day parking charges will apply.

Advance purchase is not available for Exhibition type events – please speak to attendant on arrival to be directed to a suitable area

The business area of Thorndon Quay offers limited street parking, however try to avoid the Thorndon/Wadestown residential area. It is restricted to residents only and stringent tow away enforcement will apply. If you have a regular city car park, we suggest using it and walking to the Stadium or catch a shuttle.

There is a very limited number of coach parks at the Stadium available for specific events. For certain major events, your coach driver will have a special parking area at the port or another location near the railway station. In this instance it is a short walk from the coach parking areas to the turnstiles. Your bus or coach will remain in the parking space for the return journey.

All coach parking, drop offs and pick-ups must be pre-arranged through the Bus and Coach Association, P O Box 9336, Wellington. Phone (04) 499 7334 or email [email protected].
