New Zealand Welcome Home Parade

Thursday 6 July 2017

Auckland City Centre & Viaduct Harbour, 12.30pm – 4pm


Auckland will host Emirates Team New Zealand Welcome Home Parade on Thursday, 6 July.

The parade will start on Queen St, before Emirates Team New Zealand make their way to an on-water parade starting in the Viaduct Harbour, giving spectators an opportunity to cheer on the team along land and water components of the parade.

The road parade route is:

  • commencing at the corner of Wakefield Street and Queen Street at 12.30pm
  • travelling down Queen Street, turning right into Customs Street East
  • from Customs Street East, turning left into Gore Street
  • from Gore Street, turning left onto Quay Street to the Princes Wharf/Eastern Viaduct intersection.

Emirates Team New Zealand will then take to the water from the Viaduct Basin for a sail past, giving viewers a unique vantage point from which to welcome the team home.

The on-water parade is:

  • around the Viaduct Basin
  • past the Viaduct Events Centre to North Wharf
  • back to the New Zealand Maritime Museum and around Princes Wharf
  • around Queens Wharf, where the sail past finishes.

The parade route and recommended viewing points are included in the below image. The parade route and details of the event are here.  This will be updated with further information in the lead up to the parade.
