View Larger Map

The Farm is situated on the North Island of New Zealand.

From The South Drive 15 minutes north of Whangarei towards Cape Rienga and turn right off SH1 at Whakapara just after the BP petrol station onto The Old Russell road. It is sign posted to Oakura. We are 15km past Oakura on the right hand side of the road. Some maps will show Tutaematai which is where we are. You should see our big "The Farm" sign out the front. If you have driven too far you will drive over two single lane bridges that are right next to each other.
Journey time from Whangarei is approx. 60 minutes.

From the North Take the car ferry from Opua to Okiato/Russell. ($8 per car/$1 person or cyclist. Runs every 10 minutes or so.)Drive towards Russell for 5kms and turn right onto the Russell/Whangarei road. (sign posted to Whangarei/Rawhiti) After 20 minutes or so you will come to a gravel road on your right signposted Kawakawa/Waikaire - DO NOT TAKE THIS ROAD! (lots of people have) 500mtrs further down the hill the road makes a sharp left turn and to the right is another gravel road signposted Forest reserve. If you like windy gravel roads and looking at kauri trees then take this road as it is about 10 minutes quicker than continuing on the tar seal road around the coast past Jack's Bay, Parekura Bay, Elliots Beach and Ngiotonga. Do not take the roads to Rawhiti or Bland Bay, just stay on the road to Whangarei. The Farm is on the left hand side heading south after two single lane bridges and has a big "The Farm" sign out the front.
Journey time from Russell or Opua is approx. 50 minutes.

Cyclists: the road is now tar seal all the way from Russell to Whangarei. A lot of maps and guide books still say it is unsealed.
