The Cloud is a temporary structure on the western edge of Queens Wharf. It was erected to accommodate Auckland’s commitment to host an inner-city Fanzone, festival and showcase event during the Rugby World Cup 2011.

At almost 180m long, The Cloud can accommodate up to 5,000 people. Its’ ground floor area can be split into four segments, which means the building is able to cater for a range of showcase and festival events occurring at the same time. The mezzanine space at the northern end of The Cloud is ideal for VIP hosting.
