In Addition

There is so much to do at Kauri Cliffs; days are effortlessly full of indulgent treats and exhilarating days out. Request a private beach barbecue or picnic on a secluded stretch of coastline, or try out land-based fishing - a lucky catch will result in the Chef preparing a seafood speciality for your dinner. Alternatively, take a guided bird-watching tour, go boar and possum-hunting or practice first with clay pigeon-shooting. There are also mountain-bikes available for guest use and the staff will be more than happy to organise excursions further afield (scenic flights, cruises and sailing are all available in the area). We can highly recommend a trip to the Kawati Glow Worm Caves, which are fascinating and beautiful in equal measure.
