About Us

The Waihōanga Centre has been run as a retreat centre for over twenty years. During that time, different owners have made improvements to both the grounds and land, left their own personal touch, and fostered an ever-growing community of friends and visitors who continue to return regularly.

Andy and Rhian, supported by friends and colleagues who live both on- and off-site, are honoured to be the current “kaitiaki” and to continue the legacy of care and custodianship of this very special place. We welcome enquiries from visitors who are interested in staying at the lodge and cabins, as well as those who would like to help around the property.
