The vibrant café and bar scene is making a name for itself, and plentiful open spaces mean the city is an easy place to spend time in. The city is also rapidly gaining a reputation as a business hub for creativity and innovation as well as a destination for world-class international, national and local events.

Getting to Hamilton

You can choose to fly from Australia into Hamilton Airport or for more variety and flexibility in flying times you can fly to Auckland. Hire vehicles can be easily hired from either airport.

Teams are required to make their own travel arrangements from Australia and should hire vehicles to get them to and from the airport. However, there will be transport provided where necessary for visitors to New Zealand to ensure you arrive at the Challenge venue.
