From the North

You can take Hwy 1 south to Warkworth, turning left at the first set of traffic lights, and follow the signs towards Leigh / Goat Island Marine Reserve. Or for a more scenic drive, you can take the Wellsford turn-off towards Pakiri. (The Pakiri route is not recommended for caravans or large vehicles as it is gravel most of the route, and is often narrow and winding.)

From Auckland

Take Hwy 1 north to the end of the motorway at Puhoi (note that the motorway is a toll road from Orewa to Puhoi (see the NZ Transport Agency website for tolls and instructions for payment), and continue on to Warkworth. At the second set of traffic lights in Warkworth, turn right and follow the signs 22km to Leigh.

Once in Leigh, you won’t be able to miss the Carnival! The school is on the main street through the village, next to the fire station and across from the Leigh General Store.
