  • Description


    Welcome to our Farm and Camping Ground overlooking the Ninety Mile Beach in the middle of a wilderness dune environment. In May and June we are running a volunteer planting program to restore the dune just in front of our farm. We are looking for keen helpers to plant native plants and to enjoy the costal environment. At first it looks very isolated, but then just about every day some new travellers arrive and you can meet cool people here.

    Besides visitors at the Camping ground we have a farm with cows, horses, dogs and chicken. The Ninety Mile beach is just in front of our farm. Great for fishing or collecting shellfish. For Jogging or just watching the stunning sunset. There are several other very diffrerent beaches close by and also Cape Reinga is not to far.

    You have a nice accommodation with sea view in our cabins at the Camping Ground. You are responsible for your own food supply. All cooking vasilities are available in the kitchen. You we'll need your own transport as we are about 13 km from the next shop. You also will need your own car to explore the vey North of New Zealand. Welcome.
