Travellers' Choice 2018 Winner
Certificate of Excellence
Experience true New Zealand hospitality. Waipoua Lodge is a little piece of luxury etched in history where you can experience true New Zealand hospitality whilst travelling Northland’s Twin Coast Discovery Highway. This circular route provides two diverse coastlines which offer in just one region, so much of the natural environment which is our beautiful Aotearoa. Nestled on a ridge overlooking the vast Waipoua Forest – home of the ancient and iconic kauri trees, Waipoua Lodge offers relaxing, warm and authentic New Zealand hospitality and the perfect location from which to explore the beautiful and often undiscovered Kauri Coast - Pathway to Northland and Naturally New Zealand’s Ancient, Eco & Cultural Destination. With the mixture of yesteryear in the old Kauri lodge, home to artefacts from the Kauri logging era, to the four acres of garden and tranquil bush walk surrounded by pasture and forest you will be inspired and all within an easy 3 hour drive from Auckland.

Accomodation options are not numerous on Northland's West Coast. Accomodation options at a high standard and with excellent service are rare. Waipoua Lodge provided a special and luxurious place to stay.

Very tranquil accommodation within the Waipoua Forest. Hosts were very friendly and very helpful even under very sad circumstances. They made sure we were able to watch our Australian AFL Grand Final and served dinner afterwards. Very to recommend.
