World Masters Game Event

In conjunction with the World Masters Game taking place across Auckland our opening hours will be affected during the event's 10 day schedule.

Please note that:

  • We will not be open Sunday 23rd April during normal trading hours.
  • We will have a delayed opening on Saturday 22nd, opening at 12pm, last entry at 4pm. This day Tamaki Drive will be closed off from Mission Bay through to Queens Wharf until 2pm.
  • We will be open on Saturday 29 April from 9:30am, Tamaki Drive will be closed off completely from Mission Bay to St Heliers but cars can access Kelly Tarlton's through the traffic control point at Ngapipi Road and Kitemoana Street to park on site.

This has also impacted our Shark Bus Shuttle on the above days; it will not run Saturday 22 or Sunday 23 April. It will be running Saturday 29 April and will work with traffic control management to access the site from the city side of Tamaki Drive.

Due to these closures we have launched a brand new event, Aquarium After Dark, this Saturday and Sunday evening. Experience Kelly Tarlton's like never before and explore the Sub-Antarctic penguin zone in a brand new light under the romantic tones of an Antarctic sunset and watch our penguins settle in for the night.

Event starts at 5pm, last entry at 6pm.
