The distance from Christchurch to Tekapo is about 225 km, and is three hours by road. If you plan to travel from Christchurch to Tekapo on 9 or 10 June, the conference may be able to arrange transport for you if this is required. Please email Rosalie Reilly (Rosalie.firstname.lastname@example.org) if you require a seat. Specify the preferred date and time you want to travel. We expect there will be private cars making this trip.
In addition we will also hire two 12-seat mini-buses for conference participants. These will depart from Christchurch at about 1 pm on Sunday 10 June and one of them will return to Christchurch departing Tekapo on Thursday 14 June at 9 am.
Likewise, there probably will be vehicles travelling from Tekapo to Christchurch on the evening of 13 June or morning of 14 June. Please email Rosalie if you are interested in a seat.
There are also daily scheduled bus services between Christchurch and Tekapo in both directions (on the Christchurch to Queenstown route). See
