  Caniwi Lodge

A wilderness paradise in a breathtaking rural lakeside setting.

We are only:

  • One hour drive from New Plymouth
  • 30 mins drive from Stratford
  • 20mins drive from Eltham
  • 40 mins drive from Hawera
  • One hour and 40 mins drive from Wanganui
Drive over the Mangamingi saddle and nothing can prepare you for the truly amazing countryside you will be now experiencing. You drive through lush dairy farmland and into eastern Taranaki's productive sheep and beef hill country and will observe dramatic geological differences. There is a fantastic photo opportunity at the top of the saddle.

Turn right onto Aorere Rd - dodge the sheep - look for the kiwis - all the while being enthralled at the natural beauty of the protected New Zealand native bush. On your left, after approximately two kms, you will get your first glimpse of what many have described as "an oasis in the middle of nowhere!"

Follow the signs to Caniwi Lodge. You have entered another world!
