The “Manaakitanga – inspiring support” Gathering is a non-residential conference so people from out-of-Christchurch will need to independently find their own accommodation.
Here are a few possibilities:
If you are looking for nearby motel accommodation we recommend the Middlepark Motel. It is the closest (literally over the back fence from St Thomas of Canterbury College) and is in easy walking distance. There is a bus stop near-by as well as a takeaways, a bakery and a convenience store.
There are many motels along Riccarton Road which would be 30 – 45 minutes walk from the venue. Backbacker accommodation tends to be near the CBD. Make sure you check the location of your accommodation in relation to the venue.
