We are situated directly off State Highway 2 between Katikati and Tauranga. If you are coming from the north (Auckland, Coromandel, Katikati) we are about 7kms south of Katikati. Look out for the golf course on the left and we are in Walker Road East which is the next road on the left. Drive down to where the sealed road ends and the Bird Gardens are on the left.

If you are coming from the south (Tauranga) we are about 25 minutes drive from downtown Tauranga. Look out for Morton Estate winery on the left and we are the third road on the right after Morton Estate. That's about 7kms before Katikati township.
