Waitiki Landing Complex: Northern Most (Petrol) Pump
This is the last pump north, so check your tank before going further north to make sure you do not run out of petrol.
If you have heard a rumour that the petrol station burnt down you are right, BUT it was rebuilt and operational 10 weeks after the fire, so there is still petrol available - no worries!
Also, the good news now is that you can pay by credit card when the pumps are unattended.
What to pay: Usually the same, or maybe a couple of cents more.
