State Highway 2 is the main route through
the region. Travel north from Wellington or south from Hawke's
Bay to come to the region.
Many tourists also choose to travel through
Tararua on Route 52 which is the alternative road to State
Highway 2 when travelling north - south. This journey takes
in some of the region's spectacular rural scenery and friendly
small town hospitality. This is also the access road to
the region's untouched east coast beaches at Akitio and
Herbertville. Route 52 can be accessed from Eketahuna in
the south and Dannevirke in the north.
