Location, Parking and Transport

This year Wellycon has a new location:

Wellington Indian Association (Inc)
48 Kemp St, Kilbirnie, Wellington 6022

This new location allows a less crowded layout, all on one level making it easier to find a table to game together and ensure you get the most of what Wellycon has to offer!


The Wellington Indial Association has a paved parking lot, with parks right-around the building. Additionally there is some street parking on Kemp St.


Bus: Recommended bus routes are Route 2 and Route 3, alighting at Kilbirnie Stop A. This is just a short walk to the venue.


Food on-site

This year we are being catered by Ngaio Scout Troupe as part of their Jamboree fundraising and community service. They are providing a variety of food throughout the day including:

  • Baking
  • Toasted Sandwiches
  • Savouries
  • Soup (vegan)
  • American HotDogs

A main meal for Saturday night can be either pre-ordered with your Wellycon ticket, or a limited quantity may be available for sale on the night.

The meal options are:

  • Butter Chicken and Rice
  • Thai Chickpea Curry and Rice (Vegan, DF, GF, contains peanuts)
  • Macaroni & Cheese (Kid-sized portion)

As always at Wellycon, you are welcome to bring your own food from outside the venue, but we hope you join us in supporting this worthy fundraiser.
