Getting here

The Historical Maritime Park and Museum is situated on the busy State Highway 2. The speed limit is 100kms, so take care turning when entering and exiting the park.

From Auckland direction

As you near Paeroa, you will go over the long Puke Bridge. Slow down - the park is coming up on your right.

From Paeroa direction

Go out of Paeroa town heading towards Auckland. You'll go along a long straight road, the over a small bridge. Around the next sweeping corner, the park is on the left. If you go over the long Puke bridge, you've gone too far.
