We've got a backpacker's lodge in the middle of a back country sheep & beef station. If you're looking for a quiet place to relax among some of New Zealand's best scenery this is the place. We are located 10 minutes from Peel Forest and great hiking trails.
We also run a white water rafting company from the lodge so there are staff/customers around most days between 9:00am and 6:00pm.
The lodge can accommodate up to 38 people in one night. We have 4 dorm rooms and 2 double rooms (one double has a single bed as well). The kitchen and living/entertainment areas are communal. There are separate men's and women's toilets with showers in each.
We have many games and dvds available for rainy days and nights.
We offer white water rafting on site for all the adventurers out there.
We suggest you bring breakfast, lunch, and dinner groceries along since we are a wee ways away from the nearest store. However, Peel Forest cafe/pub has some really great food. We also provide a free continental breakfast which includes bread, cereal, jam, butter, milk, coffee, tea, and sugar.
If you have any questions please don't hesitate to ask us.
We have staff available between 9:00am and 6:00pm to answer any questions of give suggestions on activities to do in the area.
