Once on the island, we can arrange to pick you up using our own vans. Alternatively there are hire cars and a shuttle service to any destination accessible by road (many properties only have water access).
If you travel by ferry the drive from the ferry wharf at Tryphena to Orama takes just over one hour, or from Port Fitzroy wharf around 15 mins.
If you fly the drive from the main airport at Claris is about 45 minutes and from the secondary airfield at Okiwi is only 15 minutes.
The roads on Great Barrier are typically windy and narrow but thankfully mostly sealed. The roads from both ports and the airfields to the turn-off to Orama are all sealed.
Orama sits at the end of Karaka Bay Road, a 3km stretch of windy metaled road. This road can be slippery when wet so care is required.
