Awatere is in a unique location, but it is also so central for fishing, exploring the outdoors with Piano Flat Reserve close by, or take a visit to the renown Croyden Aviation Museum at Mandaville, Eastern Gallery or the Hokonui Moon shine Museum at Gore. We also have a great country hotel and restaurant in Waikaia.

Both James and I have enjoyed living here at Awatere Station for over 20 years. We have 3 sons, whom are at University or out doing their own thing ie travelling at the moment. We love where we live with the outdoors on our doorstep with rivers, hills and bush - it is a great office space!. We both traveled pre marriage/children, and hope to do more, but we do enjoy our breaks usually to warm beach's either in NZ or away. We look forward to meeting you.
