Activities

This is a large working farm with dairy cows and horse trekking. You are welcome to explore the farm and take part in farm activities such as milking.

Here are some ideas for a country retreat or family fun.

  • Splash around on the lake in the canoes
  • Take a picnic lunch and eat it in a canoe on the lake
  • Include a horse trek (advance booking usually required)
  • Bring your mountain bikes and explore the hills and tracks
  • Get up early and walk down to the milking shed to watch or take part in the daily milking routine (milking times vary - check on arrival)
  • Take a night walk to see our gloworms
  • Drive down and park at the horse arena and follow the track on foot up to the top of our main hill (20 minutes) where you have a view over the Waikato basin. Watch the sun set from the top of the hill, and see the lights come on over Hamilton, Ohaupo, Te Awamutu and Cambridge
  • Take a picnic lunch and eat it in the middle of a paddock with the cows or horses
  • Sit in peace and quiet on the deck and read your favourite book or just relax in the sun
  • Swim in the creek
  • Go for a leisurely walk and explore the farm, follow the tracks or go across the paddocks
  • Feed the eels in the creek (bring some old meat scraps or burly to feed them!)
  • Just sit quietly and take in the fresh air and views from the house
  • Take a grooming brush and a few apples and go for a walk to find our trekking horses
  • Find a tree to climb
