Set in sheltering native beech trees alongside a beautiful mountain stream in the heart of Tongariro National Park. Campervan and tent sites, cabins, backpacker beds and backpacker rooms available.

We are just a short drive from the start of the Tongariro Alpine Crossing and are at the base of the impressive Mount Ruapehu.

Stunning short and multi-day hikes nearby, many within walking distance. They are a great alternative to the Tongariro Crossing in bad weather.

Summer sight-seeing and winter skiing just a few kms up the road (arguably one of New Zealand’s best ski fields).

If that’s not enough then take advantage of some great mountain biking, trout fishing, guided river canoeing or other fun activities.

We are in the heart of a World Heritage area, of importance for it’s Maori cultural and spiritual associations as well as its outstanding volcanic features.
