Pig and Deer Hunting
Hunting pigs and deer is our passion. We offer a real experience of hunting in New Zealand’s native forests, with our own trained pig dogs.
There is an abundance of wild game in the Whirinaki and surrounding areas.
There are plenty of day walks ranging from all day walks to just a couple of hours. These tracks are well looked after by the Department of Conservation (DOC).
Along the way you will see flowing rivers and hear amazing bird song.
Guided Fly Fishing
The Whirinaki River is one of the largest tributaries of the Rangitaiki River and provides excellent fishing for a large population of both rainbow and brown trout in very clear water that flows over a rock and stone bed.
The Whirinaki finds great favour amongst anglers because of the quality of the fishing and the beautiful scenic nature of the river and its surroundings.
