Fyfe River Gorge is located in the SE corner of Kahurangi National Park. From SH6, 18km north of Murchison if driving from the south, or 16km from Kawatiri Junction if driving from the north, turn onto Owen Valley East Road. This is a well maintained gravel road, please drive conservatively, particularly past houses and the lodge.
Drive for 11.5km until you cross a bridge and through a gate with emergency Number 1157 (white on blue), a white farmhouse is on the left. Take the second left and another left when facing the DoC “Mt Owen” sign. You can park your car in the trees before concrete ford or follow the orange arrows across paddocks past cattle yard and through three gates, until you meet the river, park here off to the side.
