728 SH 3, Hangatiki Junction, Waitomo, New Zealand

We are nestled between Otorohanga (8km) and Te Kuiti (11km), which are both only a 10-minute drive from Waitomo Caves. It is a great central stopover point, only 2.5 hours from Auckland, the ski fields and New Plymouth, and 1.5 hours to Taupo and Rotorua. The beautiful west coast beaches of Raglan, Kawhia and Mokau are just 1 hour away and trout fishing and hunting are right on our doorstep. Several golf courses are from 2-minutes to 30-minutes' drive away and there is a local garden and creative arts trail nearby.
