Driving is the most convenient way to get to us, but the campus can be reached using public transport followed by a 10 minute walk.

Check in at Callaghan Innovation reception and we will come and get you.


The 84 bus from Wellington Railway Station is the most direct (with the Parkside Road stop only five minutes walk from Reception), it but runs only morning and evening. Alternatively, take the 81 or 83 bus from Wellington Railway Station to Hutt Park Raceway and walk the remaining distance.


Take a train to Woburn Station from Wellington Railway Station and walk the remaining distance.
