Enjoy genuine silence and peace in the remote New Zealand bush
Wild Perfection Wild Perfection

Central North Island

New Zealand


Owhaoko is living in wild perfection. Stay in our mountain cabin Te Whare Ruruhau (a place of shelter, refuge and protection) overlooking the winding Mangamingi River and high plateaus beyond.

Be as active or relaxed as you desire, Owhaoko has many precious gifts to reveal to the perceptive traveller.


Soak up the grand vistas and enjoy guided hiking through native forest and alpine grasslands. Climb to a secluded waterfall or merely meander along the valley floors. Home to several rare flora species, our land is also the headwaters to several pristine rivers perfect for trout fishing or swimming.


Everyone who visits Owhaoko understands it is a deeply special place. Owhaoko is accessible by helicopter from the Taupo or Hawkes Bay regions.
