About The Civic Tours

Tāmaki Makaurau’s favourite tours are here for summer! Take a peek behind the curtain and explore one of the world’s last remaining atmospheric theatres.

Auckland’s grand old lady of theatre and musicals is back. Auckland Live is rolling out the red carpet for the return of The Civic Tours, the much-loved walking tours of the iconic landmark that Aucklanders and visitors can’t get enough of. For more information visit

A good level of mobility required

On The Civic Tour you will climb around 300 steps as you move throughout foyers and spaces. While there are railings and a number of rests throughout the tour when the guide shares our stories, you will not have the opportunity to sit for any long period of time during the tour.  

Arrival Time

Please meet in the front foyer of The Civic – 15 minutes prior to the tour e.g. if the tour starts 10am, please arrive at 9.45 am.

Additional Information

Due to the limited capacity of 16 people per tour, all patrons must have a ticket. This small group size means you have plenty of time ask questions to your guide, take photographs and get the best views.
