Getting there

By air

Air New Zealand offer direct daily flights to Blenheim from both Wellington and Auckland.

Sounds Air offers direct daily flights to Blenheim from Christchurch and Paraparaumu.

Flights land at Marlborough Airport, 7km from the centre of Blenheim. The 10 minute drive into town can be taken by taxi, shuttle or rental car.

We are looking at offering coach transportation to and from the airport during peak flight times for a nominal fee. You will be asked to indicate if you are interested in this during the registration process along with your estimated travel date and time. If you would prefer to arrange your own transportation, local options are below. We recommend booking these in advance.

By sea

The 3.5 hour ferry trip from Wellington with Bluebridge or Interislander arrives at the port town of Picton. Picton is a 25min drive from Blenheim. Visit the delegate deals page for information on how to get a 20% discount on the Interislander.

By road

Charge your camera for photo opportunities along your road journey to Marlborough from Christchurch, Nelson and the West Coast. Bus services also operate into and out of Marlborough. Car parking is available at the venue for a small charge.
