After approx 15km past Takapau, the Waipukurau Golf Course appears on left. Approx 1.5 Km past golf course, pull off SH2 into the left layby beside the street-lamp for the Pukeora Scenic Rd turning (to the right). Take care of SH2 traffic, when all clear, cross the highway into Pukeora Scenic Rd and head for top of hill.
