via Russell Road
Follow State Highway 1 out of Whangarei heading north. Fifteen minutes north of Whangarei, after you have passed the Whakapara BP service station turn right into Russell Road . This stunning coastal road offers spectacular views of unspoiled beaches and native forests. Do not turn off the bitumen onto a gravel road – all roads lead to Russell at that point including the paved road you are on. The Russell Road takes up to 1.5 hours and we recommend a stop along the way at the Helena Bay Art Gallery. Turn right at the T intersection at the end of Russell Road and Russell – Orongo Holiday Park is 500 metres on the right.
via Opua and car ferry
Follow State Highway out of Whangarei heading north. Ten to fiteen minutes after Kawa Kawa is the turnoff to the right to Opua. At the bottom of the hill turn left for the vehicle ferry. There are two ferries operating continually, usually between 7am and 10 pm and bookings are not required. Exit ferry and continue on road to Russell. The Orongo Bay Holiday Park is approximately 5 kilometres from the ferry, on the right.
