Accessibility

Westpac Stadium has a gold rating from Be. Accessible. We aim to deliver a quality experience for all patrons including those with disabilities. We provide a number of facilities to ensure attending an event is as easy as possible.

Getting to the Stadium

Are you being dropped off by vehicle?

  • There is a set down area available on the ground floor car park. Just ask the car park attendants for directions.
  • From the ground floor, a golf cart is available to transport you up to a set down area near the Stadium entrance.
  • A limited number of wheelchairs are available to assist you in getting to your seat from the drop off area. Please alert a staff member if you require such assistance.
  • For exhibitions, vehicle set down may be permitted at the top of the ramp, if traffic volumes are low.

Are you bringing your own vehicle?

  • 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.
  • Event day parking can be purchased in advance by calling the Stadium Trust office on 04 473 3881 or send us an email. Advance purchase needs to be completed at least one week prior to the day of the event.

Are you coming by bus or train?

An eight-seater golf cart is available to transport patrons requiring assistance from the top of the railway station ramps, or the top of the spiral staircase on Thorndon Quay, to the entrance gates.

If you require this assistance, please call the Stadium Trust office on 04 473 3881 and let us know your anticipated time of arrival. We will try and have a people-mover to meet you. At the end of the event, the people-movers will run on demand to return you to one of the three areas.
