Visit the stunning Karangahake Gorge, our bach is located in Waikino only a few minutes walk across the swing bridge to the Hauraki Rail Trail, historic gold mining sites & miniature train.

We are nestled above the iconic Waikino Tavern, so after your day exploring the area you can grab a drink, a meal and relax!

Waikino is located half way between Paeroa and Waihi, close enough to easily pop into town to explore the antique shops and art galleries or head down to the beach for some time in the sun.

The bach itself has four double rooms and a bunk room and there are an additional three double rooms & a bunk room in two separate buildings available for larger groups or individual hire.

Please note: the bach is over 130 years old (it used to be a miner's boarding house), it has been renovated internally but it's still an old structure with the associated quirks and is very much a 'kiwi' family bach not a new building.

Special conditions: Deck is not fenced so not suitable for unsupervised children. If you haven't booked all the accommodation the shearers quarters & baby barn may be rented separately.

    Cold, damp and dirty. Situated on an extremely noisy road that kept us all awake.
