It sits on the edge of the Rangataua forest, walking, mountain bike tracks and a horseriding school are right on the doorstep. Tongariro National Park is a 30 mins drive away, as is the Old Coach Road mountain bike track and the Tongariro Crossing day hike and the stunning Chateau Tongariro Hotel.

In winter, Ohakune is a ski town with three ski fields within an hour's drive; Turoa is closest just 25km away up the Mountain Road, Whakapapa and Tukino are an hour away. Waiouru army museum is 20 mins in the other direction.
