From Christchurch:

This way will save you approximately 1 hour.  Coming from Christchurch, you have the option of going through Nelson and taking the "from Nelson" directions, or you can turn off at Blenheim, taking the "West Coast" turn-off.  This will take you up the Wairau Valley, bringing you out at Kawatiri (T Junction, can't go wrong).  Instead of turning left to go to the West Coast, you turn right to Nelson, travel approximately 15 minutes up the road to the "Glenhope" sign.   Travel 1.4km past that sign and turn left into Tapawera Glenhope Rd (Dry Weather Road).  Don't take Moonlight Rd by mistake!  If you get to the passing lane up the hill, then you've missed it.  NOTE:  This is a gravel road, very narrow and "twisty" and not good for families with car-sick children!!    Drive 15.4km down that road til you get to a four way crossroads.  Turn left into Tui Road (this one also says Sherry River).  Follow the festival signs.  If you miss Tadmor Glenhope Rd turnoff or decide not to take it, continue up and over the Hope Saddle and drive til you get to Motupiko and turn left at the Flat Rock Cafe.  The signpost says to Tapawera.  Drive to Tapawera - go through the town and turn left after the Mobil garage (Tadmor Valley Road).  Follow that road until you get to the "gravel" sign (approx 24kms) and turn right into Tui Road.
