Looking to make your way to Fieldays next week? Whether it be by car, bus, boat, or helicopter – we’ve got you covered. If you’re looking to beat the queues, you can explore our alternative transport options designed to deliver you straight to the gate.
To stay on top of traffic, head to the Fieldays Facebook page for transport updates as well as NZTA’s website with the keyword Fieldays for up to date traffic and travel times.
Travelling by bus into Fieldays is another very most popular method of transport. Fieldays 2019 ticket holders can catch any Hamilton City or regional (Raglan, Cambridge, Te Awamutu, Paeroa, Te Aroha, Morrinsville, Huntly) bus that will take riders first to the Hamilton Transport Centre, then straight to the Fieldays gate! Buses depart from Hamilton Transport Centre approx. every 30 minutes, from 8am to 11am, with buses returning from 1pm to 5pm.
We also offer a free Park ‘N Ride services located in the northern carpark at the The Base, Hamilton and the BMX Club on Milton Street, Cambridge. Simply park your car securely, present your Fieldays 2019 ticket, and hop on the next bus leaving for Fieldays. These buses depart approx. every 30 minutes from 8am onwards.
For those wishing to drive themselves to Fieldays 2019, parking is free and open from 5:30am – 10pm. We advise a nice, early arrival to our visitors arriving by car so you’re able to park up sooner and get to exploring Fieldays without delay.
Please take care on the busy roads around the Mystery Creek area – our volunteers do their best to get you in and out of the car parks as fast as possible, but the high volumes of traffic may cause delays.
Mobility parking will be available through Gate 0 for CCS Mobility Parking Permit holders. Due to a limited number of mobility scooters available for hire, we recommend booking in advance Life Unlimited 0800 008 011. These scooters can be located at Gate 1.
If you’d rather avoid the traffic on land, head to the skies! Get in contact with our preferred supplier, Helicorp, for a breezy flight to Fieldays 2019. There is a designated helicopter landing zone beside the Waikato River jetty, located near Gate 7. Further information and flight arrangements can be found on their website helicorp.co.nz or contact Helicorp on 07 848 3447.
Another great option for avoiding traffic and being delivered to the gate is to travel to Fieldays by boat. Enjoy a trip down the Waikato River and arrive at the Waikato River Jetty near Gate 7. Catch the Waikato River Explorer from Hamilton Gardens or the CamJet jetboat from Narrows Lane – visit waikatoexplorer.co.nz or camjet.co.nz for more details or to book.
