Eating and Drinking
At Kanuka, you have the option of self-catering or you can order one of the Kanuka breakfast or dinner hampers.
The breakfast hamper includes fresh fruit or berries accompanied by Helen's Homemade Muesli, orange juice, home baked wheaten bread for toast, with creamy butter and homemade preserves, four free range eggs ready for cooking with fresh local ham and tomatoes. Also includes fresh coffee grounds to make that special first cup.
The dinner hamper includes organic, locally grown meat and vegetables. The main meal is accompanied by fresh salad greens and tomato salad, with a delicious home-made dessert slice and yoghurt. To finish is an 'Over the Moon’ (local cheese maker) cheese board. All accompanied by 2 bottles of crisp Kawakawa Beer.
The camp kitchen has a BBQ and camp cooker for preparing either your own self-catering, or the meal hamper meals. You'll find all the cutlery, crockery, pots and pans that you'll need as well as environmentally-friendly detergents and basic condiments such as salt and pepper. Once you're there, it's either a boat ride or a walk back to The Landing, so make sure you're thorough - and bring all the supplies you'll need!
The best place to stop for groceries on your way to Kanuka, would be the Countdown or Pak N' Save supermarkets, located near the centre of Rotorua. Closer to the lake, at the turn off to the Blue Lake and Lake Tarawera (Te Ngae roundabout) is the Redwood Centre. It has a good range food stores including any pharmacy requirements which should include insect repellent.
