  • Beschreibung


    Hi and welcome to our eco project. We are establishing this place at Waipu Caves - a supportive refuge for self discovery and healing through a deep connection with nature.

    Set amongst the majestic limestone formations and sacred underground passageways of Te Ana Waipu (Waipu Caves), the property rests on 14 hectares of native bush and pasture. The huge limestone cave system covers some four square kilometres and is home to millions of glow worms adorning the cavernous ceilings and freshwater koura in the chilly Pools below. There are swimming holes surrounded by native trees in the river a short walk away. The beautiful beaches of Bream Bay are just 15 minutes away!

    This summer we are making our vision a reality - and we need your help.

    • Upgrading our water system

    • And more…..

    This is a magical place with caves and walks close by and beaches a short drive away and lots to explore. It is good to have your own car to get out and about. We are 13km from the nearest shop at Waipu township. It's another 10km or so for surfing. Whangarei is the nearest city 19km away.
