Set among the towering rainforests and majestic mountains of Mt Aspiring World Heritage National Park, Makarora is a whole different world with amazing scenery and an abundance of bird life. One hour from Wanaka or Haast on State Highway 6 we offer a variety of A-frame accommodation with that 'back to nature' feel, to suit every budget. The adventurous can jet-boat the Makarora and Wilkin Rivers, do the Siberia Experience (scenic flight, walk, jet-boat), take a helicopter ride or walk to the top of Mt Shrimpton. There are also a number of short nature walks and superb fishing nearby. Or perhaps, just relax at the pool, the cafe or bar while enjoying your surroundings. The Cafe/Restaurant & Bar provides evening meals and refreshments, while the store stocks groceries, souvenirs and fuel. Pets allowed by arrangement.
