There are small shops in Omapere and Opononi.  The closest supermarkets are in Dargaville and Kaikohe.

Fill up your petrol in Dargaville or Kaikohe because the petrol in Omapere can be 25 cents per litre more!!

Instead of turning right onto Waiotemarama Gorge Road after Waimamaku, catch the OMG view of the Hokianga Harbour and entrance from the top of Pakia Hill.  Come round through Omapere and Opononi.  There is a shop and petrol station in Omapere and a shop and hotel in Opononi.

Bring cash. The shops, petrol station and hotels have EFT-POS.  There is an ATM inside the petrol station at Omapere.  However, this ATM does not accept National Bank or ANZ EFT-POS cards.  It does accept Rabo, SBS, BNZ, Westpac, KiwiBank and TSB. Maximum cash withdrawal per transaction is $200.  Transaction fee is $2.50.

Carry on a further 3 km east of the Opononi wharf and turn right on Waiotemarama Gorge Road.  The Lodge is 3.5 km up this road, on the right.

We're looking forward to greeting you upon your arrival.
