12 Old Mill Lane, Ngunguru.
We live one kilometre past Papaka Road on Ngunguru Road.(The Ngunguru Bypass) That is .003% off trail. Position 35deg 37′ 56″S – 174deg 28′ 53″E.

Disregard the No Vacancy sigh if you wish to camp. The sign is for the B&B. We always have room for Te Araroa hikers to camp.
We offer camping for koha for trail walkers. Despite what the Topo Maps show, there are no Camp Grounds in Ngunguru. It makes an ideal stop prior to the day walk to Pataua or North to Whananaki. If we are not home camp on the grass patch between the gardens on the right about 20m past the bee hives on the left. You will find a toilet in the bush behind the garden and water at the pump shed by the tanks. Please conserve the rain water. It is all we have.
Pop up to the house and say Hi. We would like to meet you. Good to give us a call first on 022 626 7166.
The Ngunguru Connection – One of the easiest, fastest way to the Mackerel Forest Track is to hitch from our place as opposed to crossing the Ngunguru River in Ngunguru (New route as of 2016 season) and road walking the nine kilometres to the Mackerel Forest track. (Little traffic on Ngunguru Ford Road from Nikau Bay.)
Cheers from Hilton and Melva – Safe hiking.
