    We are Brit orienteers planning our retirement adventure to NZ in February/March next year.  We have just spotted that the NZ Champs are on at that time in Nelson.  Can anyone tell us why it appears to be a longer festival next year than 2015 and also when details may be available.  We are booking our holiday shortly and have to make the decision whether to extend our trip to take in the Champs or not. Thank you!



    I think the start date may be listed incorrectly. Our nationals are normally held from Fri to Mon over the Easter Holiday. So the dates are most likely to be 25/3/2016 to 28/3/2016 (4 Days, same as this year).

    Hi. Michael here from Nelson Orienteering Club. We’re organising the NZ Champs in 2016. They’ll be held over Easter which is in late March as mentioned above. The Sprint on the Friday mid-day is in Nelson central city. The rest of the events are at St Arnaud about 75-90 minutes drive south from Nelson. Best to stay there for Friday evening.

    Hi Michael

    Can I please clarify that you recommend travelling to St Arnaud on Friday after the sprint and staying there Friday, Saturday and Sunday nights?
