Walking Trails

Trails from 40 minutes to 3 hours take you under, over and through the Boulder valley and all the way up to the Magic Rock , overlooking the Hokianga habour from the top of the hill.



Come and spend the night under the clearest skies in the world, listening to the morepork and the sound of the Wairere stream.


Kayak The Boulder River

Hire a kayak and let the tide take you through the boulders, along the Wairere stream and Wetland and out into the Hokianga Habour.


Highland Cows

On the farm we have Highland cows which are adapted to living off poor quality grass and don’t mind climbing a boulder to find it.
