Activities

The Land

The Log Cabin is situated on 12 organic acres of landscaped parkland which you are free to roam at leisure. There is a choice of large swimming holes in the adjacent river, a few smaller pools to splash about in and a river island to explore. The largest swimming hole is large enough to swim over 100 metres in a straight line without touching the bottom.

At present we are establishing The River Garden with shady cherry trees and a few edible citrus trees for relaxing afternoons by the largest swimming hole.
There is a beautiful olive grove and large expanses of sheep grazed meadow to play in.
If you love animals, then Lily the goat is always up for a chat and a pat.
Adjacent To The Land

From the southern boundary of the property there is an extensive network of Department Of Conservation walkways heading deep into the Kaimai Mamaku Forest Park.

Family friendly and thoroughly recommended walkways from the property include:
Bluff Stream Kauri Loop Track
Daleys Clearing Loop Track
and the Waitawheta Tramway
Further Afield

Further afield but still within very easy access is the ever popular Hauraki Rail Trail.
It's an easy 8km cycle to Victoria Battery where you can continue through the stunning Karangahake Gorge, either to Waihi or all the way to Paeroa, taking in bridges, tunnels and breathtaking scenery along the way.
Also, highly recommended (if you're not afraid of heights!) is
The Karangahake Windows Walk , a labyrinth of cliff clinging paths winding through old gold mining tunnels and criss crossing the rivers by newly installed swing bridges.
Shopping

There's plenty of opportunity for shopping in the area too;
Waihi Town and Waihi Beach for their gift shops, galleries and craft shops,
Paeroa for it's famed second hand collectable shops.
Restaurants and Cafes

Within the area are a vast array of eateries;
secluded cafes and restaurants in the Gorge and plenty of choice in town and at the beach.

Here's a few that we really like:

The Bistro
Ohinemuri Estate Restaurant
The Porch
Flat White Beachfront Cafe
Joy Sushi
Lemongrass Thai Restaurant and Takeaway
