From the airport
From the airport: walk across the road, right into Broadway and left into Hector Street, where the No 2 Karori bus stops. The fare will be $5. Ask the driver for ‘the stop immediately after the bus tunnel’. Booklovers is across the road.
- Coming from SH 1 or SH 2, stay on the motorway and go through the Terrace Tunnel. You come out into Vivian Street. Just go straight from here. Vivian becomes Pirie Street. Go up to the last house on the left. Park in the driveway or in the next bit up, which is parking for the city’s green belt tracks.
- From the Interislander or Bluebridge ferries: turn left, go past Te Papa/national museum. After passing the New World supermarket on your right, turn right into Oriental Parade, which quicky becomes Kent Terrace. Turn left into the third street on the left – Pirie Street – and come up to the last house on the left. (It is smoother and prettier to turn left into Elizabeth Street, right into Brougham and then left into Pirie Street).
- Driving from the airport: take the route towards Wellington. After coming out of the Mt Victoria Tunnel go three-quarters of the way round the Basin Reserve cricket ground – and into Cambridge Terrace. Turn right into Pirie Street and come up to the last house on the left – 123.
- If you take a taxi, call Pirie Street: Py-ree Street.
