River Valley is situated in the Rangitikei District of the North Island of New Zealand. It is near the central North Island town of Taihape. If you are traveling South, turn left at the River Valley signpost, 18km after Waiouru.
If you are traveling North, use the Gretna Hotel in Taihape as your starting point, the 32km drive will last around 35 minutes after taking you through some of New Zealand's finest and most picturesque hill country. Please follow the River Valley, yellow finger signposts.
After turning off State Highway 1, you will cross two bridges coming from Waiouru, and three bridges coming from Taihape. The last 5km's are gravel and take you to the Lodge at the end of the road.
