Holidays in Bowl of Brooklands

Holiday Travel Guide
Bowl of Brooklands featuring a park and a pond

Enjoy the great outdoors with a picnic lunch and a bushwalk or watch a live concert at this one-of-a-kind venue set in a beautiful grass amphitheater.

Discover the Bowl of Brooklands, a truly unique venue for concerts, events and ceremonies amid beautiful green surroundings. Enclosed by a charming lake and the stunning backdrop of New Plymouth’s Pukekura Park, the venue consists of an outdoor sound stage and a natural grass amphitheater that can hold 15,000 people.

Nothing beats seeing a performance in this spectacular venue, particularly during the summer months between December and February. Anticipate the excitement as nightfall looms. Watch and listen as the wonderful acoustics and lighting on the stage transform the natural environment. Find yourself enthralled along with those around you and marvel at the dynamic interaction between the performance and the surrounding trees, hills and lakes. With the volcanic Mt. Taranaki looming overhead, the natural elements combine with the performance to produce a magical experience.

Check New Plymouth’s event venues website for ticket prices and event times. Alternatively visit the ticketing box office, which is located in the TSB Showplace in New Plymouth’s city center. The venue hosts a wide range of events, from small private functions to large concerts with internationally renowned musicians.

Afterwards, visit the Brooklands Zoo, which is only a short walk away. Discover a charming, family-oriented free zoo that provides hours of fun for parents and children. For recreational outdoor activities, choose from a range of options in Pukekura Park. Rent a wooden rowboat on the lake or explore an underground fernery that displays temperate-weather plants from around the world. When you are hungry, get a snack from the kiosks in the park. If you feel like something more fancy or just want a break from the sun, try the Tea House, which has served food and drinks next to the main lake since the 1930s.

The Bowl of Brooklands is only a 20-minute walk from the center of New Plymouth through Pukekura Park. Alternatively, drive here and use the on-street parking when large events are on.
