Follow Highway 6 south to Richmond. Stay on the highway through the traffic lights at Richmond. At the roundabout (traffic circle) after the lights, take the exit to Motueka (Highway 60). Continue along Hwy 60 for approx 40 km (25 miles) to a roundabout (traffic circle) at the entrance to Motueka township. Take the second exit into High St.

In Motueka, continue along High Street (Hwy 60) which is the main street through Motueka. Then continue along High St. out of town for approximately 8 km (5 miles). The highway contains several junctions but you continue on the main road as it crosses the Motueka River (long, narrow 2-lane bridge), veers right through Riwaka and then crosses the Riwaka River Bridge. Two hundred meters past Riwaka Bridge, turn right off the highway, signposted to Abel Tasman National Park via Kaiteriteri. Continue for 6 km to Kaiteriteri.
