Transport options for Coca Cola Christmas in the Park

Take the family to the annual Coca Cola Christmas in the Park at the Auckland Domain by train, bus or ferry on Saturday 14 December, 7.30pm.

The popular concert event attracts thousands of people and public transport and roads around the Auckland Domain will be busier than usual.

This year there is a complete liquor ban in place for all public transport services as well as Christmas in the Park, so please leave all beverages at home.

Some roads around the Domain will be closed and parking restrictions will apply so people should consider public transport to get there. There are a range of transport options and fares; however you should check in advance to see what suits you and make plans to travel early. Check how you can get to the concert and back home by using the journey planner atwww.at.co.nz.
