The 2018 CMFnz Conference is located at the Silverstream Retreat, at 3 Reynolds Bach Drive, Upper Hutt.
Only 30 minutes' drive north of central Wellington, and 35km from Wellington Airport. It's a beautiful venue, surrounded by native bush, with views of the Hutt Valley.
There is limited public transport available from Wellington Airport to the Silverstream Retreat. The Wellington Airport website lists a range of options.
The Airport Flyer bus travels from Wellington airport to Lower Hutt via the Wellington Train Station, and departs every 10-15 minutes. You would need to catch another bus from Lower Hutt to get to conference. One possible plan:
Take the Airport Flyer to the train station. Take the Hutt Valley Line Train to the Petone Station. Catch the 110 Bus (Petone-Emerald Hill) from Stop B at the Petone Station, and get off opposite the Silverstream Railway Museum, 100m from the Silverstream Retreat.
Catching a Super Shuttle is an affordable option, particularly if travelling with two or more people. Bookings are recommended.
