Travelling to the Show?

Ardmore airport is situated 5-10 minutes east of Papakura/Takanini and 30-40 minutes south of the Auckland CBD.  If you are are travelling to Ardmore for Warbirds on Parade there are a couple of things to know.

Firstly, access to Ardmore Airport is via Hamlin Road ONLY!  The Airfield Road entrance via Corsair Lane is CLOSED!

Hamlin Road can be accessed either by Mill/Cosgrove Road or Papakura-Clevedon Road.

When you arrive at Ardmore you will be directed to parking.  Once parked you can then make your way to the ticket gates and show entrance.  There will be plenty of signage showing you were to go.

  • Lovely cafe with a great view of all the planes taking off. The museum guides are super friendly and my son absolutely loves coming here. Highly recommended.

  • Fantastic opportunity to get up close to some of the icons of New Zealand’s aviation history - with the majority being flyable examples. Knowable guides to fill in any gaps in your own knowledge. Topped off by an amazing scale model collection.

  • Interesting guided visit around the War Birds Facility, get up close to the war planes. Beautiful display. Would suggest combine with a visit to the Auckland Botanical Gardens. A Great Auckland Day Out.

MH367 Sun Dancing ☀️ All 3 fighters were out this past weekend after a couple of weeks of unusually wet weather in Auckland. Amazing how effective the Spitfire’s desert camouflage is for New Zealand’s green landscape. ⛰️🏔️ #keepemflying #warbird #avgeek #aviation #aviator #aviationlovers #spitfire #merlin #kittyhawk #p40 #mustang #p51 #aerobatics #aviationphotography #pilot #flying #flight #photographer #instagood #airshow #show #onlyinnz #nz #newzealand #aotearoa #visitauckland #pioneer #purenz #IfYouSeekNZ
