This is a fabulous place . . ..
to relax, swim, dive, snorkel, fish off the rocks and get away from it all.
There are several good walks, or laze about areas.
Or you can sleep or sway in the hammocks.
Or read a book.
Relax. lounge and enjoy our outdoor recreation and BBQ area.
Spend some time wandering about capturing some of the most amazing photo opportunities New Zealand has to offer.
Observe the animals in their natural friendly environment.
Watch the native birds flutter about in the trees and tweet to each other. (The birds used twitter long before mankind ever thought of it!)
Or take some time to reflect, recharge and refocus on the things you deem important.
If you would like to kayak you will need to bring your own correctly fitting certified life jacket.
We do not at the moment have spare life jackets, so if you can leave one behind or donate one it would be awesome and appreciated and enjoyed by many that come to Cairnhill in the future.
