The Galloway Cattle Society of New Zealand Incorporated is happy to report that it has now decided on the dates and venues for the next World Galloway Conference in 2025.
It will be held in the deep south of the South Island, starting on Thursday 27 March through to Wednesday 2 April 2025.
This is autumn in Southland and Otago, so hopefully we will be rewarded with the sight of beautiful autumn leaf colours as we travel around these southern regions.
The starting location is in the city of Invercargill on the south coast where we will stay for 3 nights, then we will travel by coach north to Queenstown located inland in the mountains on beautiful Lake Wakatipu on Sunday to stay for a further 3 nights.
Direct flights are available into Invercargill Airport from our international airports of Auckland, Wellington and Christchurch.
Direct flights are available out of Queenstown Airport to Auckland, Wellington, and Christchurch, with access to connecting flights around NZ. Also there are direct flights from Queenstown to the Australian cities of Sydney, Melbourne and Brisbane on Air New Zealand, Qantas, Virgin Australia and Jetstar.
WGC 2025 Chairman, Angela McNaughton, think s some of the Waikato breeders may be planning a short itinerary prior to start of the congress for anyone interested in visiting this area in the North Island, to see some Riggit Galloways and other local herds.
They understand that the Sydney Royal Easter Show will take place over Easter weekend 18 – 21 April 2025, so this may be of interest to those travelling from the Northern Hemisphere.
They expect that registration for the Congress and hotel bookings will be available from 01 April 2024, and further information will be sent out prior to that date.
Angela would like to extend a warm welcome to anyone from anywhere in the world that shares our common interest in the Galloway breed of cattle. Our breeders look forward to hosting you in New Zealand.
