Getting to Manganui from New Plymouth

Head south, out of New Plymouth along state highway 3 (towards Hawera). Travel for 38 km until you reach Stratford 50km/hr area, and see the sign for East Egmont/The Plateau. Turn right onto Pembroke Road and head towards the mountain. The sealed access road travels to the National Park boundary (passing the Platinum Lodge after 5km), across farmland (passing Andersons Alpine Lodge on the right before the Egmont National Park boundary gates),

then through native forest to the Ngati Ruanui Stratford Mountain House (Cafe, Restaurant & Accommodation), continuing 3km up to The Plateau (the top car park). 

From the Plateau car park it is a 25-30 minute scenic walk to the ski
area, with a goods lift 10-15 minutes along the way. A good time to take in the scenery!

Travel Diary

After skiing at Manganui, you may want to check out the SH43 'Heritage' Highway. This threads through pristine sub-tropical rain forests and unspoilt scenery, just as they were thousands of years in the past - including the beech ridge-tops of Whangamomona Saddle and the awesome Tangarakau Gorge.
