Getting here
Proudly situated in a dual World Heritage National Park, Tūroa is a drive away from the North Island's main centres

Location & Drive Times

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 shuttle or drive up the Ohakune mountain road.

The closest airport to Tūroa is Taupō's domestic airport.

Subaru Road Info

Subaru vehicles are particularly well suited for winter driving. The All-Wheel Drive system automatically transfers power from the wheels that slip, to the wheels that grip. If you need a reminder of why Subaru is the ideal match for the mountain, simply look at what our team drives. We're in Subarus for a reason!
