  • We have just been on a school trip to Aroha Island... we had a wonderful time and our hosts were wonderful. They took such good care of us. Can't wait to go back again. Very clean and well set out facilities. Loved learning about kiwis and listening to all the birds. Beautiful view from the lodge. A must go to camping area with lots to learn and explore for kids and adults alike.
  • Peaceful and calm. Great if you want some down time.
