From New Plymouth: Follow Devon street (the main road thro’ town) south out of town. This becomes SH 45, the coastal highway. We’re 14 kilometres from the edge of town and just 2 kilometres past the village of Oakura.
From the South: Follow SH 45 coastal highway from Hawera to Opunake. When you come to the roundabout in Okato, turn left and drive for 10 kilometres. We’re on the right, 400 metres past Lucy’s Gully and the Wavehaven backpackers. Rapid number is 1403, those knee high blue signs at every gate.
