Getting Here and Around

Whangarei is about two hours by car from Auckland on State Highway One. Bus services (NZ$40) also travel this route but take longer as they stop at many small towns along the way.

You can fly from Auckland to Whangarei, but factoring arriving at the airport and checking in, it's often quicker to drive to Whangarei. There is no train service.
