With three natural sports fields and the music-friendly amphitheatre, the ten-hectare venue is a popular spot for speedway, rugby, music festivals and international tours. Watch the venue light up to the candle-like glow of 50,000 phones waving across the stadium – it's almost as impressive as the massive screens on the main stage.
Prefer exhilaration? Watch drivers zoom around Western Springs Speedway, a summer tradition that has been honoured since 1929.
Picturesque as ever, Western Springs Stadium borders the sprawling surrounds that include Western Springs Park, MOTAT (Museum of Transport and Technology) and Auckland Zoo.
