About the Central North Island, New Zealand

Rotorua must be the “ Maori Cultural Capital” of New Zealand. Be sure to try a sumptuous Maori “Hangi” (feast) where your food will be prepared in the traditional way, on hot rocks.

The region is also the prime area for seeing the amazing geothermal attractions, being well endowed with beautiful lakes, steaming terraces and spouting geysers. Look carefully and you will find secluded natural hot pools hidden in forests.

Taupo’s splendid outlook over the lake to the majestic mountains beyond is truly a sight to behold. Catch your breath at the magnificent Huka Falls or catch a trout for dinner! Be sure to take one of the many trips on offer to explore some of the largest lake in New Zealand and visit the Maori Rock carvings that can only bee seen from the water.

There is plenty to keep adrenalin junkies going too – jet boating, tandem sky diving, ungy jumping and much more. There are also a surprising number of top quality golf courses here too.

Tackle the awe inspiring Tongariro Crossing or ski the slopes of Mount Ruapehu; you won’t run out of sights to see or things to do.

Guests are welcome to enjoy viewing any activities which are happening during their visit but it depends on what’s happening on the day – so it is a bit of a lucky dip really. There could be shearing, lambing and calving, feeding out or maybe simple day to day activities. There are usually pigs/piglets to feed. Glenn would be happy to do a dog run on a few sheep if people wanted to see how the dogs work. Roxy the horse is there for patting and feeding.

Many people enjoy a walk around the farm. There are numerous walks possible from a 2km stroll up to the airstrip to view the mountains and extensive farm land on a clear day. For those looking for more of a challenge there is a 5km walk through the middle of the farm up to the trig. Take a pack with a few treats to enjoy when you reach the top.
Then of course Timber Trail Farmstay is an ideal base to enjoy cycling the Timber Trail.

After your days activities you may like to relax in the outdoor shower or bath and could be treated to the Kereru flying amongst the trees or the calling of the morepork in the evening. Or just enjoy the quietness of rural living.
