About the property

Farmstay, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Bathrooms, (Sleeps 7)

The farm has been in the family for 100 years and we are the the 4th generation to farm Tuahu. It is a 3500 acre property with beautiful views and a wonderful river running through the front of the property which is enjoyed by many travellers. The Ruakituri River is known to be one of the best trout fishing rivers in the southern hemisphere which has some very good access points to drive to and spend your day. We farm both sheep and beef and most of the work is done on 4 wheeler bikes and horses with sheep dogs. You will find a pet calves/sheep/horses/dogs/goats/turkeys on the farm during your stay and some are seasonal pets. Lake Waikaremoana Mahia and Gisborne Beaches are a great day trip to visit from us. We have the Te Reinga Falls and the Waitangi Falls all accessible from Tuahu. Come and see for yourself a typical New Zealand outback farm

Huge space to run and plenty of trouts in the river nearby. You will love the serenity of the farm and everything is well organized. Would love to visit john and Amanda anytime. The kids are already asking to go back to the farm.

Well equipped house on a large sheep station in the Ruakituri Valley.

  • 3 of 5

Well equipped house on a large sheep station in the Ruakituri Valley. An ideal location for those planning to fish the Ruakituri River, or for those wishing to enjoy the peaceful rural environment.
