The Gallery and Cafe are located on Helena Bay Hill, Old Russell Road.

We are just north of Whangarei and on the scenic road to the beautiful Bay of Islands.


Heading North along SH1 from Whangarei
Follow SH1 past Hikurangi. Turn right at the intersection just after the Whakapara Service Station,

signposted “Oakura”. (this BP is the last major petrol station before Russell/Bay of Islands).

The gallery is located 14km from the turn-off and is approximately 35-40 minutes drive from Whangarei.


Heading South from Russell/Pahia via Old Russell Road (scenic route)
From Paihia follow the directions to the Opua car ferry. Take the car ferry (which runs regularly from 7am to 10pm daily).

On the road between the car ferry and Russell township look for the turn-off on the right (or on the left if coming from Russell township)

signposted “Whangarei via Coast”. Stay on the tarseal road for approximately 60km, we are past the settlement of  Helena Bay.


Heading South on SHI from Kerikeri/Paihia/Kaitaia
Continue south on SH1 through Kawakawa and look out for the turnoff to Oakura Bay on your left, just before the Whakapara Service Station.

There is plenty of off-street parking available outside the Gallery and Cafe, and room for large vehicles.
