The Cloud

The Cloud

The Cloud on Auckland’s Queens Wharf was created as FanZone (“Party Central”) by the New Zealand Government for the Rugby World Cup 2011. After the event was over, it was gifted to Auckland City, where it is now a popular venue for a multitude of events.

The structure is almost 180 metres long, and 29 metres wide at the widest, 21 metres wide at the base. “A temporary structure to last up to 20 years”.

Kingsland Dairy

Kingsland is right next to Eden Park, the temple of Rugby. The dairy here has flags aplenty — and comfortable chairs for the locals to have a yarn as they meet at the shop.

Displaying the Flags

Far be it from me to advertise the services of a certain telecommunications outfit – but here is their building resplendent in the colours of many a rugby nation. And almost All Black.

A view of the opposite side of the building and in daytime is here.
