How to get here
The NZ National Agricultural Fieldays is held at Mystery Creek Events Centre, 125 Mystery Creek Road, Hamilton, in the North Island of New Zealand. Home of Fieldays for over 40 years, Mystery Creek Events Centre is located right in the heart of the Waikato, two minutes drive from Hamilton International Airport, close to State Highways 1 and 3, and 17 minutes from Hamilton city, Te Awamutu and Cambridge.
Hamilton is a 1.5-hour drive from Auckland, Tauranga and Rotorua, making Mystery Creek Events Centre an ideal location for companies to meet ‘in the middle’. There are several accommodation options available within five minutes from the Mystery Creek Events Centre. As well as multiple road access, Mystery Creek features a helipad for air access and a jetty for access from Waikato River.
Entry and parking
The best way to access Fieldays from Hamilton is via SH3. Ample free outdoor parking is available on site at Mystery Creek Events Centre. Our venue also features a helipad for air access and a jetty for access from Waikato River. Please take note of where you park your car, as due to several hectares of parking space it can be difficult to locate your vehicle at the end of the day.
Gates open daily at 8.00am, and Fieldays closes at 5.00pm. Disabled parking is available on site.
Please refer to the Fieldays Interactive Map to view areas designated for disability parking. CCS Mobility Parking Permit holders will be allowed to park in areas designated for disability parking, provided your CCS Mobility Permit is displayed in your windscreen. You will also need to be in possession of valid Fieldays entry tickets.
If you do not have a CCS Mobility Parking Permit, you can apply for a short-term permit for a three- or six-month term (with doctors verification). It's only $35 for a short-term permit and then you can access mobility parking anywhere in New Zealand, including Fieldays.
