Your hosts Bob and Mary Redpath will make every endeavour to ensure your time spent on our farm is a memorable and enjoyable experience. The Redpath family have been living on Wairata Station for over 100 years. Bob and Mary will be more than happy to share some of their many memories with you. Whether you’re here to relax or do one of our many activities, you will be well looked after. We have hosted guests over the past 22 years and people keep returning because they, like us, have fallen in love with our beautiful and unique piece of New Zealand.

Situated in the Waioeka Gorge Scenic Reserve, one of New Zealand’s many beautiful nature reserves. The Waioeka Gorge is bountiful in New Zealand’s native flora and fauna. Sightings of Blue Ducks, Red Deer, and Tui can happen on a daily basis, as well as sightings of many other native species. We have numerous farm and forest tracks for you to explore ranging from an easy flat gradient to a decent uphill trek.

The beauty is that our property will be yours to indulge in. The magnificent Waioeka River runs through our property and is renowned for its feisty rainbow and cunning brown trout. The farm also shares its borders with the rugged Te Urewera National Park, one of the largest untouched stretches of native forest left in the North Island of our beautiful country, New Zealand.
