If you are travelling north on State Highway 1, Feilding is only 15km or 15 minutes from Sanson. Wellington is 150km away which is a two hour journey. Feilding to Hawkes Bay on the east coast, Taupo up the centre, or Taranaki on the west coast are all 2 - 3 hour journeys. So you can see Feilding is a pivotal point at which to break your journey.
Warwick Street runs across Kimbolton Road in Feilding, the main road through the town.
