Our knowledgeable tour guides will lead you through this iconic venue where some of the biggest names in music have graced the stage – The Beatles, The Who, The Rolling Stones and Elton John to name a few.
You’ll learn the fascinating history of the iconic landmark, from its inception and design in the 1900s to its incredible restoration in the ’90s.
At the end of the tour, enjoy a hot complimentary beverage, soak up the atmosphere of this glorious building, and ask the guides any final burning questions.
This is a great opportunity to learn more about a iconic and historical part of New Zealand’s history!
