Current alcohol bans
Alcohol has been banned from some public places in Auckland to encourage a safe and welcoming environment.
In some places drinking or carrying alcohol is banned, in other streets and parks, carrying alcohol is permitted but drinking alcohol is banned.
The bans are in place 24 hours a day, seven days a week in some places; in others they are only at night time or during daylight savings.
Temporary alcohol bans
Temporary alcohol bans are sometimes put in place for major events to ensure the event is safe for everyone to enjoy.
We will let you know of temporary alcohol bans on all event information before the event. There will also be signs at the event itself.
Examples of event-based alcohol bans
- Christmas in the Park in the Auckland Domain.
- Warkworth Kowhai Festival.
