    About this place

    Getting there

    Flora car park is 75 km from Nelson and 36 km from Motueka.

    The Motueka Valley Highway links Nelson and Motueka. Turn off this road at Ngatimoti and cross the Motueka River. Turn left onto Motueka River West Bank Road, then right into Graham Valley Road, which climbs steeply to the car park. The last 5.8 km is unsealed and turning a vehicle on the road can be difficult. In summer the road can become rough; in winter a 4WD is recommended as there can be ice and snow.

    Know before you go

    Wasps are a known hazard and are particularly common from December until April. Carry antihistamine in your first-aid kit, or as an extra precaution, carry an EpiPen.
