Treat your family to a memorable trip. Our friendly family park boasts great facilities and activities including an outdoor swimming pool, a games room, a jumping pillow, a bouncy castle, two adventure playgrounds, a trampoline, petanque, aviary, slackline, basketball hoop, volleyball net, dining and BBQ areas.
To take the fun further you can hire trikes to ride around the park, kayaks to take out onto the Whanganui River and mountain bikes to race through the local mountain bike tracks. If that's not exciting enough, we can organise a game of paintball for you and your friends. And if you fancy a run around or game of ball there's a large open field next to the park.
Launch your own boat, jet-ski or kayak from our boat ramp. Or we can take you 5 or 8 kilometres up river and you can leisurely kayak back to the park, taking in some of the fabulous scenery you just don't get to see by car.
After a long day kayaking, mountain biking or trekking, you will need to take a breather. Wind back and relax by booking out our private spa for you and that special someone. Kick your shoes off and doze on our hammocks or in our comfortable communal lounge with Sky TV.
