Hooper's Inlet is also the Aurora Australis capital on New Zealand - the best Milky Way and Aurora photography can be taken right here. In these busy times your holidays are precious and we understand that you need your privacy, freedom and space. At Hooper's Lodge you will find everything that you need for a comfortable and pleasurable stay.

With plenty of local attractions including Hooker Sea lions right on your doorstep, organised tours can be arranged or simply unwind with a leisurely stroll, say hello to our horses then return to sit on the sun drenched deck with a glass of fabulous New Zealand wine whilst your dinner slowly cooks on the BBQ. A sumptuous breakfast of New Zealand fare is included within the tariff.

  • Beautiful and peaceful location

    Beautiful and peaceful location. Great getaway from the city. Property had better amenities than a top hotel. Our young children loved the games, toys, and videos. This property was one of the best stocked and well maintained places we have stayed -- and not the most expensive either! Location convenient for exploring the peninsula's wildlife. Highly recommended.
