From Rotorua Airport
Turn left as you exit the Airport. Travel for about three minutes until you see a major turn on the right, signposted “Whakatane”. This is State Highway 30. Set your trip meter as you turn, and travel exactly 20kms. You will see Morehu Loop Rd on your left. Turn in here, travel 50m, and take the short road on the left without name. We are a short distance down on the left. Wildwood is signposted on the gate. Keep turning right after you enter the gate and this will bring you to the front entry of the Lodge.
