Travel along the rugged coastline to the picturesque, historic fishing village of Ngawi, looking back over Palliser Bay to Wharekauhau.
Continue on to one of New Zealand’s largest Brown Fur Seal colonies where seals bask in this unspoiled natural environment. Whilst there, climb to the top of the lighthouse for magnificent views. On return, stop at the historical Lake Ferry Hotel for famous fish and chips and some local beverages from the southernmost tip of the North Island.

For over a century, Wharekauhau has been regarded as much more than a lodge or a farm. The lands special spirit has captivated, inspired, and resonated deeply with those that have experienced Wharekauhau. It is a place that the naturally dramatic surroundings can influence healing, self-consciousness, and provide a distinct sense of place and calmness… Hauora, (Pronounced; Ho-ore-a), is a Maori philosophy of total health and well-being, and we believe it pays great tribute to the people, and energy of the land, past and present.

Clay Target Shooting

Richard Rooney

Clay shooting tests the reflexes like no other sport, and what better place to enjoy a shoot than Wharekauhau’s own clay-target field. Small calibre guns and rifles are available: .22, .22 magnum, .410 shotgun, 20 gauge and 12 gauge shotguns. Firearms, ammunition, targets and instruction are provided.
