Whangarei to Whangarei Heads
When you get to Whangarei follow the signs towards Town Basin and then to Onerahi. Just after the Onerahi shops take first exit at the roundabout by Hammer Hardware, onto Whangarei Heads Road, follow this road past the Parua Bay Shopping Centre. After the Parua Bay Shopping Centre the road then takes a 90 degree turn, continue to take the Whangarei Heads Road until you reach the McLeod Bay 50km large speed sign. We are the second entrance on the right after this sign. There is a silver dollar gum tree at the entrance with the no’s 1856.
