Greenstone Entertainment


27 January 2019




Less than three hours’ drive from Auckland, (or a 20 minute flight) on the beautiful Coromandel Peninsula is Whitianga. Whitianga is surrounded by a number of New Zealand’s most stunning and popular attractions including; Hot Water Beach, Cathedral Cove, Mercury Islands and the diverse topography of the Coromandel east coast. Renowned for its pristine waters, recreational boaties have an abundance of bountiful fishing and diving, including the productive game fishing grounds just a short distance beyond the Mercury Islands.

Whitianga is a bustling township within a unique geographical setting, a coastal township that is fast evolving to offer the ideal coastal/marine lifestyle. Whitianga Waterways, host to the Whitianga Summer Concert, sits just behind the Whitianga town centre – this development is on the path to becoming one of New Zealand’s most desirable coastal settlements.

Find out more about Whitianga at All About Whitianga , including accommodation options, or try trivago to ensure you’ve got a great place to stay for the concert!


Greenstone Entertainment is proud to bring the annual Summer Concert Tour back to  Whitianga Waterways Arena  which is a purposely built concert site easily able to cater for up to 15,000 people. Its brilliant wide spaces allow for plenty of parking, along with generous areas for seating for concert goers. With the backdrop of the Waterways and the surrounding native bush it is the perfect way to enjoy an afternoon of ‘classic rock’ from some of the world’s greatest bands.
