Guests staying at Tokomaru have exclusive access to 3,000 acres of privately owned property. The woodlands, valleys, hills and waterways which make up the estate can be explored using over 80 kilometres of private roads, meandering trails and carefully crafted tracks. Whatever your interests may be this diverse landscape will provide a breathtaking backdrop to your next adventure.
An extensive network of tracks and trails make its way across the estate and through a magnificent stand of Redwoods. Set off on foot, mountain bike or saddle up for a scenic journey amongst these towering trees. With numerous other species to see this tranquil environment is the perfect setting to enjoy our beautiful flora and fauna.
The Whanganui River, New Zealand’s largest waterway, meanders along the Eastern border of our estate. Pick from a number of easily accessible sites along its banks for an overnight stay, picnic lunch or launch a kayak for a fun-filled river adventure. The river is suitable for kayakers with little or no paddling experience while those seeking more of a challenge can explore the small rapids and deep pools the river is known for. Fly fishing or spin fishing is a must during your stay, with a healthy population of brown and rainbow trout nearby. Fishing equipment and instruction can be supplied on site as needed.
