Getting to Camp
How to get to the Camp
Dance Camp Aotearoa takes place at Omatua Girl Guide Camp 1866 Puketitiri Rd, Rissington, Hawkes Bay.
From Napier-Taupo Rd, turn right into Glengarry Road (it’s easy to miss so reset your speedo at Taupo, but the signpost also says ’Hawkes Bay Outdoor Leisure Club’ and ‘Taupo 113km, Napier 30km’), follow this road to the end (about 17km), turn right into Puketitiri Rd. Omatua is about 4kms along this road on the right hand side just before the bridge at Rissington (If you miss the Glengarry Rd turnoff, come to Bay View and turn right into Seafield Rd)
NB: Your last petrol station is in Taupo. It is important to fill up there or before at the Gull at Atiamuri north of Taupo.
Follow Puketapu Rd from Taradale, turn left into Vicarage Rd, and almost immediately right into Dartmoor Rd, turn right into Apley Rd, left into Puketitiri Rd – Omatua.
From SH2, turn left into SH 50 south of Waipukurau. Follow to Fernhill, at Fernhill veer left into Swamp Road (Do not take the road to Taihape which is on the left). Turn right into Omarunui Rd, and almost immediately left into Vicarage Rd, over the bridge and left into Dartmoor Rd, right into Apley Rd, left into Puketitiri Rd – Omatua.
