Where you’ll be

Waitomo, Waikato, New Zealand

The Waitomo and Hauturu highlands are peaceful and tranquil with stunning views of the central North Island. Views of the Tongariro National Park, volcanoes Mt Tongariro, Mt Ngaruhoe(Doom) and Mt Ruapehu and many more volcanic mountains that are now extinct. All of which give stunning views in all directions.
Working sheep and Cattle farms surrounding, completing your rural escape from the city. Many native birds enjoy the vast native tree plantings that we have planted and use us as a flight path between the Stubbs farm QE2 bush covenant and the Ngatapuwae Department of Conservation reserve.
