Welcome to Wairata Station

Relaxing has never been so easy

A new dawn for a fresh start

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, Bellbird, 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.
