  • From Auckland, New Zealand:

    1. Take State Highway 1 to the south. In the small town of Ngaruawahia turn right off State Highway 1 into State Highway 39. There's a BP Connect service station at the turn and the signage points to Otorohanga.
    2. Continue on State Highway 39 through the tiny settlement of Whatawhata and cross State Highway 23 (the Raglan Road). Continue on State Highway 39 through the village of Pirongia.
    3. State Highway 39 imperceptibly becomes SH31 – follow all signage that leads to Otorohanga
    4. At the southern end of Otorohanga township State Highway 31 intersects with State Highway 3. Turn right (south), cross the Waipa River and follow the map details above.
    5. Turn onto Otewa Road (under an overhead rail bridge)
    6. Follow Otewa Road for approximately 12 kms and turn right onto Barber Road
    7. Kamahi homestead & cottage are on the left hand side of Barber Road at 229 Barber Road – 2.29 kms from the intersection of Otewa & Barber Road.

    It is also possible to reach Otorohanga from Auckland by taking State Highway 1 to Hamilton and then finding State Highway 3 to Otorohanga/Waitomo. This will add an additional 30 minutes to your drive to Kamahi Cottage.
