FISHING

The Old Shearers' Quarters makes an ideal base for those who wish to go trout fishing. Enjoy private access to Lake Aniwhenua which is abundant in both Rainbow and Brown trout and can be fished all year round. The nearby Horomanga and Rangitaiki rivers are also wonderful spots to fish. The crystal clear waters of the Rangitaiki (also fishable year round) are ideal for both beginners and experts and trophy size fish can be caught. The adjoining Whirinaki river is also a favoured spot due to its stunning scenic surroundings.

Our local fishing guide Peter Hill has over 30 years experience and entertains anglers from all over the world. Should you wish, he can share with you his wealth of knowledge and take you to the best spots to help you enjoy the ultimate wilderness fishing trip.

“Family Paradise”

" This is a family paradise. Quiet and much to discover around.  The bach is beautiful and very comfortable.  The view is amazing and the scenic drives to Taupo or Rotorua really worth the few extra km.  Thank you  Logan for everything!"

"Lovely home to stay.  It was our first time staying in a farm area.  The owner was really nice.  Brought toys for my kids to play.  Made our Easter and my niece's birthday.  Thank YOU so much and highly recommended!
