Overview

New Zealand's premier cricket ground, the Basin was originally planned as a small boat haven to be linked to the harbor by a canal. An 1855 earthquake raised the surrounding land by one meter and the Basin was laid out as a cricket oval to the delight of a century of cricket lovers from all over the world. Watching cricket "on the bank" on a balmy summers day is a wonderful experience. The National Cricket Museum is also sited at this facility. Every December the grounds are home to the magical Christmas celebration Carols by Candlelight.
