Accommodation at Race Track Ranch

“We had a birthday party in Greytown and our out-of-towners stayed out at Tauherenikau, including myself. The beauty of this accommodation is in its simplicity.

It provides a real Kiwi experience in a magical setting. It was the ideal place for a family reunion. The rooms were warm and comfortable and it was lovely to wake up to the sound of paradise ducks and plovers. A true country experience with lots of history. There was a botanist among us who took us for a walk through the Tawa and Kahikatea trees. Tauherenikau is a magic place.”
