Waipoua Kauri Forest accommodation Waipoua Lodge
Experience true New Zealand hospitality
Waipoua Lodge | creating a memorable guest experience
Five star Waipoua Lodge is a little piece of luxury etched in history where you can experience true New Zealand hospitality whilst travelling Northland’s Twin Coast Discovery Highway. This route provides two diverse coastlines offering, in just one region, so much of the natural environment for which New Zealand is famous.
Nestled on a ridge overlooking the vast Waipoua Forest – home of the ancient and iconic kauri trees, Waipoua Lodge offers a relaxing retreat from which to explore the beautiful and often undiscovered Kauri Coast - Pathway to Northland and Naturally New Zealand’s Ancient, Eco & Cultural Destination.
With the mixture of yesteryear in the old kauri lodge home to artefacts from the kauri logging era, to the four acres of garden and tranquil bush walk surrounded by pasture and forest … you will be inspired and all within an easy 3 hour drive from Auckland.
If you have a love of food, cooking and entertaining, then dining at Waipoua Lodge will be an experience to remember. Spending some time with Fran in the kitchen could possibly be the ‘cream on your dessert!’
