‘The people’s wharf’ is the place where Aucklanders love to gather and be seen whenever big events, festivals or spectacular sunny days beckon.

Spark Arena

So much more than the arena "bowl", Spark Arena has a number of versatile spaces which may be adapted to your specific needs, from private VIP rooms to small event suites and foyer spaces. Available as breakout rooms from the main event, or as hire in their own right. You can even customise spaces for your own event.
