Upon arrival into Fairlie via Geraldine take the road to your left, signposted to Timaru, State Highway 8. (If travelling from Queenstown just travel through Fairlie). Travel approx 4 kilometres and take the first right called McLeans Road. Possum Cottage is 5km up at the very end of this road. Keep driving till you come to the entrance to Possum Cottage. It is on the left side and has a orange road-works triangle on the fence.
