Getting Here

Nelson Airport is a 10-15 minute car journey from the conference venue and is served by regular flights from Auckland, Wellington and Christchurch.

Nelson is approximately 6 hours by car from Christchurch and 1.5 hours from Picton, which is the South Island terminal for the ferry from Wellington. There is also an InterCity bus service between Picton and Nelson.

Airport to Hotel:

The shuttle service operated by Super Shuttle, or email reservations at, is cheaper than a taxi if you opt for a shared ride ($10 from Nelson airport to the Rutherford Hotel). It is best to pre-book the shuttle service.
