  • Getting from Auckland to Whangarei

    (This is a forum reply to the question - How long does it take to get from Auckland to Whangarei?)You are asking me to think back about ten years here but I remember it taking about 1.5hours to Waipu from Auckland and then another 45 mins or so from Waipu to Whangarei.

Flyers can be picked up at the airport, or look in the local papers for car hire firms.
