How to get here

We are located in the far north of New Zealand's North Island. Rangiputa Retreat is on the beautiful unspoiled Karikari Peninsula, 10 minutes off State Highway 10.

By air:
There are four daily return flights from Auckland to Kerikeri Airport (about 55 minutes drive) operated by Air New Zealand Link.

Northland mapBy road:
Travelling here by car by the direct route using State Highway 1 and State Highway 10, the journey time from Auckland airport is about four and a half hours without stops. Travelling the Twin Coast Discovery Highway - a world-class touring route leaving from, and returning to, Auckland - requires at least two days in each direction to visit the many interesting and beautiful attractions along the way.

Follow State Highway 1 north from Whangarei and turn right on to State Highway 10 at Pakaraka junction and follow the signs to Doubtless Bay. An hour's drive will get you through Mangonui and Coopers Beach and you will reach the turn right for the Karikari Peninsula. Follow the road for 12 kms. and turn left at the lake on to Rangiputa Road. You will find us on the left after 3.5 kms.

By sea:
Anchor in the beautiful Rangaunu Harbour (or in front of Rangiputa Retreat) and we will come and get you. Alternatively, anchor at Mill Bay or Mangonui (transfers available). There are many safe and tranquil bays to anchor nearby.
