These calendars shows availability of the Waihōanga Lodge (and associated cabins/ camping) and Ropes Course. Contact us to make a booking.
The Waihōanga River Lodge and grounds has operated 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 moved here in May 2017. Supported by friends and colleagues who live both on- and off-site, they are honoured to be the current “kaitiaki” of Waihōanga 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.
