A family holiday with something for adults, children and our dog

Tarata Fishaway Lodge is a secluded hideaway near Taihape. A family of 5; including a 13 and an 8 year old plus an 11month old puppy were in desperate need of a break. The River Retreat was immaculately clean, well equipped, with even plush robes to wear as you got in and out the spa which was on deck. Our hosts could not have made us feel more welcome. The trip included a guided fishing trip, river rafting and clay pigeon shooting. All these experience were amazing! With expert guides and instructors all part of the family, we relaxed and had a super time. Even our dog Molly loved this trip, including the river rafting! Brylee and all the family could not do enough for us. She even checked we did not need anything from town when she was heading that way. A true gem of a place with the most amazing hosts who work really hsrd yo help you make some very special memories. We shall definitely be visiting again. …

Fantastic weekend away

Our family did the stress free glamping rafting experience and loved every minute! we travelled with two children (6 and 11) and couldn't have asked for a better weekend - the family are welcoming and accomodating, as the scenery is out of this world. I won't go into too much detail as we enjoyed being a little surprised by the activities - but have posted a few pics...

Mystery Weekend

We have just stopped at Tarata Fishaway Lodge . It is in remote area but was well worth the visit. Trip was organized by Eastern Experience in Stratford . The accommodation ,meals, rafting down the Rangitikei river was awesome. Great Hosts .They had cute little Saint Bernard puppies and Dashhound puppies there also which some of the family breed .Would recommend and go there again.

Amazing 5 stars

Honestly the most relaxing weekend in the most beautiful place I have ever stayed to have a couple holiday without the children. Although it is suitable for the entire family it is a home away from home. We stayed in the Kanuka and the hosts went out of their way to make the stay possible and had the fire lit, the spa ready and the home Was perfect. Could not have chosen a better place for an anniversary holiday. Thank you so much to the hosts.

Raft Cruise highlight of the Covid year for us...

We wanted to head out of the city for some relaxation and wide skies. We were not disappointed. The new Kanuka Estate, which is part of the Tarata Fishaway dynasty was exquisite. The fire was lit ready for us and the spa pool was heated and majestically perched on its own deck overlooking the ravine in pitch darkness. It has to be seen to be believed. This all awaited us at the end of the easy drive from Wellington. The hospitality was genuine and heartfelt, Stephen has an incredible sense of humour and just what we needed, to be laughed at and with. Trudi and her daughters are welcoming, professional and true hosts. Arohanui
