Mangamate Falls is roughly a 1-hour' drive away from Taupo or 2.5 hours from Palmerston North. The road surface is always sealed.

From Taupo head south on the SH-1 for 65 km, then turn left into Kaimanawa Rd and stay on it for the next 2.5 km. Turn left to Beggs Pools. There is a car park at Beggs Pools with toilets (no picnic tables).
