The Waiuku Business & Development Association are really excited, along with local enthusiast club Rusty Studs, to bring the 2024 Waiuku Steel 'n Wheels Festival, our very own event, home-made in Waiuku, which has such a great following after it first revved up our town centre 12 years ago.This iconic event is a car enthusiast’s dream, but has something for everyone. From Vintage cars to Hot-rods to Tractors, and everything in between.

This year brings new attractions and some favourites including the infamous fire breathing Jet Car, a different kind of fire power from the Quad 50, a Pistol display, lots of booms and bangs, dreamy classics on wheels, live music, dancing, drummers and even some action in the sky with a variety of aircraft including chopper joy rides! Wander the outdoor markets full of crafts, gifts and delicious treats or relax with a coffee or a cold beer at one of our cafes or bars. For the kids; visit the carnival, take a train ride, have your face painted, chat to the Police or Fire fighters, and of course eat candy-floss! Glenbrook Vintage Rail will be running their normal Sunday trips between Glenbrook and Waiuku, arriving at Victoria Ave station by the Cosmopolitan Club. For more info and train fares visit

Don't miss this awesome family day out in Waiuku. $5 Entry and Gold coin for Kids, with all proceeds supporting the continuation of this community event.
No Dogs, Alcohol, Bikes or Scooters allowed into the event for safety reasons. Parking available at Waiuku Business Park off Kitchener Rd and in surrounding streets.

About 40% of the 6.5 million tyres Kiwis use every year are recycled, repurposed, or used as tyre-derived fuel. But the rest end up in landfills, stockpiled or dumped.

The good news is now there’s an easy solution to all that tyre waste. It’s called Tyrewise and is New Zealand’s first national tyre recycling scheme.

Tyrewise ensures that tyres in Aotearoa New Zealand are recycled or repurposed properly, saving millions from going to the landfill.
