  • Waterfalls such as Owharoa Falls and several other smaller waterfalls in the area.

  • Hiking tracks where you can climb to the summit of Mt Karangahake and take in stunning views of the river valley.
  • Cycling tracks include the old rail tunnel, part of the Hauraki Rail Trail cycling route.
  • Historical sights include mining ruins, the renovated historic Waikino pub, and the Waikino Railway Station – hop on the historic Goldfields Railway Steam Train and ride to Waihi and back.

ULTIMATE activities also range across the Coromandel district, the Bay of Plenty, and the greater Waikato area – ideal to visit in both summer and winter.

Various dining options are available for breakfast, lunch and dinner. These range from licensed restaurant and café meals, through to on-site catering delivered to your activity location. Alternatively, for a more informal meal we can provide BBQ-style catering, or a roast lamb on a spit which can also be set up at the outdoor camping spot.
