    Description

    A cultural exchange at a Retreat and Conference Centre set in beautiful park like grounds - with bush covered walking tracks. We are a registered not for profit charitable trust and we host individuals and groups from all over New Zealand and around the world. There is a meditation sanctuary overlooking Lake Taupo and Mt - and we have beautiful views all around.
    You can help in our amazing garden and grounds also in our kitchen with our friendly cook - who is happy to share her recipes with you. We have lots of projects going on year round we would love a helping hand with.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    Connect will fun people, make friends and be part of the welcoming family environment. Lots to do, bush walks close by, hot pools a short drive away and the lake only is 15 minutes walk. Taupo also has bungy jumping, skydiving and the Tongariro crossing
