Travel to the West Coast

The nearest airport is Hokitika (serviced by Air New Zealand), some forty kilometres or thirty five minutes’ drive south of Greymouth. The Conference Committee is NOT offering any transport service from this airport.

The TranzAlpine Express (KiwiRail) will deliver you to Greymouth from Christchurch. Local accommodation is within easy walking distance of the railway station. E.g. the Kingsgate Hotel.
