Waipoua Lodge
luxury accommodation | northland 

Perfect for a 1, 2 or 3 night stay

Nestled on a ridge overlooking the vast Waipoua Forest – home of the ancient and iconic kauri trees which have been living here for up to 3,000 years, our original kauri pioneer homestead and four acres of garden are surrounded by pasture, forest, a tranquil bush walk and QEII native regenerating forest as far as the eye can see.

When you stay with us we will share stories and history relating to the mighty kauri and the early settlers who fought the odds to live in this amazing environment. Truly an authentic experience and today delivered in the comfort of a luxury historic 5 star lodge.

Waipoua Lodge is located in a remote location and the cuisine we offer at the lodge has a wonderful reputation for being fresh produce with simple but imaginative flavours.

Take the Kauri Coast pathway to the Bay of Islands

Northland offers so much of the natural environment which is our beautiful Aotea-roa and Northland starts within an easy 2 hour drive of Auckland Airport.

For the best scenic vistas and experiences, we highly recommend that you journey clockwise, starting the Kauri (west) Coast with a visit to the award winning Kauri Museum before you encounter the ancient and mighty kauri trees of Waipoua Forest. You can then continue your pathway to the Bay of Islands and Cape Reinga.
