The Waioeka Journey, driving north, begins at Opato just north of the boundary between Gisborne and the Bay of Plenty. It's marked by a large roadside parking area.

 

The Waioeka road was a challenging one to build, and there are a number of roadside rest areas along the way. They are nice places to stop for a break on the long drive from Gisborne to Whakatane, and may be suitable to parking overnight if you're running late and need somewhere to stop.

 

Apart from being a nice layover, with additional parking on the other side of the road, there is not much else there.
