Couple of important updates. They’re small, but very important updates.

Firstly, Payments. PAYMENT IS OPEN. At this time it is open via bank transfer from NZ accounts We are currently working on a solution for any international folk. Those of you that have booked a ticket should have received an email about this in the last couple of days. Get onto this as soon as you can.

There are still beds available. At time of writing we have had over 50 beds booked, though we’re aiming for more.

Secondly, Airport Shuttles: We have a Friday schedule of airport shuttles now. We’ve been working with Naghala, our driver, on getting these times sorted. The trip from the airport is approximately 45 minutes if everything goes according to plan. At this stage the shuttle will be departing from the airport at the following times with departures on Sunday also listed below.

Friday Pick up Times

  • 12:45 PM
  • 2:45 PM
  • 4:45 PM
  • 8:30 PM

Sunday Departure times

  • 6:15 AM
  • 9:45 AM
  • 11:45 AM
  • 1:45 PM

This is approximately three trips. If your arrival is later than this and you have booked a shuttle please let us know. At this time it gives approximately 2 hours between departures on the shuttle. The driver of the shuttle will be Naghala.
