Directions and map

We are located on the Alberni Hwy (Hwy 4) in Errington. Look for the building with the bright blue roof.

From North Vancouver Island, you can take the Qualicum Beach exit from Hwy 19, then turn right towards Coombs and turn left at the Hwy 4/4a Junction. This puts you on the Alberni Hwy and we are approximately 6 kilometres along on the left side just past the QF Caseco Warehouse.

From South Vancouver Island, you can take the second Parksville exit (the one for Coombs), turning left off of the exit ramp and travelling almost 4 kilometres along. We are on the right side less that one kilometre past the Mid Island Co-op.

From the Mainland, you can travel by ferry to either Nanaimo or Victoria and then follow the signs to Parksville and use the above directions. Ferry travel is anywhere from 1-1/2 to 2+ hours. The trip from Nanaimo is 30 to 40 minutes and the trip from Victoria is about 2 hours.
