Piopio lies on State Highway 3 between New Plymouth and Hamilton (just over an hour from each). Mairoa road  heads north from SH3 in the middle of town. The turn off is opposite the Vet Clinic and the Four Square. Our farm is 5 kilometers along Mairoa Road at the very bottom of the second hill. Look for the Waitui signpost. The homestead is up the left drive and is visible from the road.

Public transport links can get you to Piopio. Intercity has a regular service that runs between Hamilton and New Plymouth that will drop you at the local garage. If you wish to travel by train the overlander will take you as far as Te Kuiti. There are no connections along Mairoa Road and alternative transport will have to be arranged. It is likely that if you can make it to Piopio we could arrange travel to our farm. However it is strongly recomended that you travel by car as nearly all the sites in the King Country are accessible only with your own transport. It is also the best way to see the rest of New Zealand.
