It takes approximately 1.5 hours from Palmerston North, and 2.5 hours from Napier by car.

There is also a daily train service to and from Wellington, with the closest stops being Carterton or Masterton Railway Stations.  A bus stop is located at the intersection of Chester Road and SH2 only walking distance from the grounds.
