Twin Coast Discovery Road Trip Northland & Bay of Islands

Russell to Paihia (Waitangi) Car Ferry

Return to Itinerary
Ferry to Russell Ferry to Russell

The day starts with a ferry crossing from Russell Ferry Terminal to Opua then onto Paihia and Waitangi. A ferry ride from Russell to Opua is a must do for visitors. Opua Ferry terminal / Russell Ferry Terminal in peak season has a considerable queue of cars. As the ferry does not take forward bookings an early start is recommended in the busy summer months. People watch, enjoy the ambiance of a bustling transport link between the holiday vibe of Russell and the road towards Waitangi. For holiday makers waiting patiently for their turn on the car ferry is a well placed fish n chip shop.


The pedestrian ferry between Russell and Pahia departs directly opposite the Duke of Marlborough hotel.
