Transportation and Logistics

Due to the limited options for getting to and from the island and getting around once there, we recommend that you plan ahead. Please be aware that transportation services are currently affected by staffing issues and passenger numbers which could impact your travel. Below are some resources to assist your planning.

Conference Venues

Main conference venue: Waiheke Island Resort located at 4 Bay Road, Palm Beach, Waiheke Island.

Dinner venue: Wild on Waiheke, 82 Onetangi Road, Waiheke Island.

Young Professional Breakfast: Arcadia Cafe,39 Palm Beach Road, Waiheke Island.


Getting to and from the island:

There are two options, via Sealink if you wish to take a car to the island or via Fullers for standard commuting.

For those travelling on Fullers and wish to use public transport we recommend you purchase an AT Hop Card at one of the AT Hop seller locations, the easiest being the downtown ferry terminal.  This way you can take advantage of the half price fares on public transport.

Plan your trip via the AT trip planner.  Key addresses include:

  • Ferries leave/arrive Downtown Ferry Terminal Pier 1 or 2 (use 9701 in planner)
  • Ferries arrive/leave Waiheke Ferry Terminal, Oneroa (use 9790 in planner)
  • Busses, Route 502 is best from Waiheke Ferry Terminal to the conference venue (and vice versa)

It is also recommend to install the AT Mobile app on your device as it provides up to date service information and live tracking.
