The 2023 Tree Crops Conference registration does not include accommodation, however the Kapiti Coast region is a holiday destination with a diverse range of options from luxury homestays, BnB’s, motels and camping. Places within 15 minutes of the venue are Te Horo, Peka Peka, Manakau, Waikawa Beach, Ohau and Levin. Many more can be found on booking sites but dealing direct is often more cost effective.  We recommend you make your booking as soon as possible as demand is high in the warmer months.

Please note at Otaki Racecourse there will be plenty of free parking on the days of the Conference. Conference days are Friday afternoon, Saturday and Sunday, with optional self-drive tour on Monday.

Make a longer break of it – check out our Explore the Region page for some places to explore beyond the Conference.
