Times from nearest road end and hut
- Flora car park: 30 min
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.
On-demand transport services are available to or from the car park - contact the DOC office for details.
