Access and Facilities

From the Newton roundabout on the Airport Highway go north-east on Highway 6. Shortly after the second roundabout go left on a small road signposted "Packers". Follow the poorly paved road to the end where you should find a sign and a chain fence. If the fence is down, it should be OK to enter according to the Website for the location.
