Transport & Ferry


Dynamo Events can transport you and your luggage between stages if required. This transport is to assist those riders who do not have a support person/vehicle driver with them. The transport is only available during the event.

The cost is $30.00 and should be paid when you enter. Upon finishing your day’s ride your luggage will be available from the truck at the finish area. You are also responsible for getting your luggage to the truck in the same area at least half an hour prior to the start each morning.

On Day One, luggage may be left at the luggage truck from 8:00am to 9:30am at start area at the McKay Stadium in Kensington.

You are strongly encouraged to bring a pack that you are able to transport yourself to your accommodation i.e. a backpack rather than a suitcase.

If you forgot to purchase the luggage option when entering you can re order at anytime by heading back to the home page where you entered.

Note: All luggage should be clearly labelled with you name and contact details.


Any Ferry crossings will be at your own cost, we will not be providing a special early morning Ferry on Friday as we have previously done on Sunday mornings. It will be your own responsibility to get your self over from Russell if you choose to say there.
