    Hi there

    I’d like to take a school trip out to Mt Auckland for about 130 students. We would like to leave and return from Kaipara Hills Rd. Is there enough parking for buses on that side? Would we be able to drive nearer to the airfield?

      Hi there, I am not really sure if the parking is big enough for bus, but if you can open the gate and enter in, there is a big place I think big enough for bus to turn around and also a toilet there. BETTER to ask city council to confirm it!
