Tūroa is an easy drive away from the main centres of Auckland & Wellington for a short or long winter break. It's also a pretty quick day trip from a lot of North Island towns including Napier, Hastings, Palmerston North and Taupo.
At the base of the Tūroa access road you'll find the North Island's most popular ski resort town, Ohakune, which is well serviced with a great range of accommodation, activities, restaurants, cafes and bars. It's easy to get to by bus or train so you don't need your own car to get here! From there, catch a local shuttle or drive up the Ohakune mountain road.
The closest airport to Tūroa is Taupō's domestic airport, with a 2 hour drive or Palmerston North with a 2 hr 20 min drive.
