  • Explore the Waikaremoana Great Walk and short walks in Te Urewera National Park

The Tuai Suite Waikaremoana is ideal for beautiful walks. It has a lovely location with lake and orchard views from the private patio and shared deck. It is very clean and modern, and has just about everything one might need for a Waikaremoana getaway.

The Waikaremoana area is part of Te Urewera National Park. The Park is renown for the majesty of it's native forest. Federal legislation written in 1954 created the park, New Zealand's third largest, for the explicit use of the people.

Lake Waikaremoana, know locally as "sea of rippling water", is undoubtedly Te Urewera's crowning jewel. The lake is believed to have formed more than 2200 years ago by a devastating earthquake. The Waikaretaheke river gorge was blocked by a natural dam, created when the earthquake caused an enormous rock slip.

Today, Lake Waikaremoana still retains its splendour being essentially untouched and having deep clear waters, bouldered headlands, protected bays, and shallow sandy shores. The Great Walk around the lake is one of only nine "Great Walks" in the country and is the best way to take in the full ambiance of the lake. Panekire Bluff is literally the highpoint of the walk providing an all encompassing view of the lake and the park.

Te Urewera also offers many less adventurous experiences: beautiful water falls, forested springs, boulder caves, short nature trails, historic sites, sunny beaches, and many natural settings presenting a glimpse of the mystique and culture of a time gone by.

Additional information about Te Urewera National Park and Lake Waikaremoana is available from our information page below and from AA Travel's website.

    Lovely cottage, set in fruit garden with lots of varieties we were allowed to try. Good bed, small but complete kitchen area suitable for cooking more than just a cup a soup. Pity about poor pressure in the shower, but otherwise a perfect place for 2 people. Great place to explore all the walks around Waikaremoana. Shop at Aniwaniwa has a few essentials, but bring your food!

    A great location with wonderful views from the garden. The accommodation is clean and tidy and has everything you need. It is perhaps a little on the small side, but call it cosy and it's perfect! The host lives in separate accommodation that is part of the same building, but you wouldn't know he was there :-)
