Then head off on Mon AKL bound. Sat: Following a GRAVEL path where we can down the west coast. Stay Awakino/Mokau 403Km Akl-Kawhia https://goo.gl/maps/f5AWNepkW

I don’t have much knowledge of the Naki other than SH43 itself, so the maps aren’t set in stone, and happy to be a sponge for any info you have or if the route could be improved 🙂 Second Day is Okau Tunnel, Kiwi Road (Tunnel), Moki Road (tunnel), Uruti Road Tunnel, Otaraoa Road Tunnel, Mangaopa Road Tunnel

Being eyeing a few paper roads in the area if i have time/gas. Anyone have knowledge of the Jury Road (101B Jury Rd, Te Wera 4392) and Mt Damper road (Mount Damper Rd, Tangarakau 4397) paper roads? I have confirmed both are public access via WAMS although that’s about all the info i can find.
