Wharerangi Forest Camp is set against the backdrop of the magnificent Waitakere forest. While only an easy 50 minutes drive from downtown Auckland, as you wind up the bush-clad hills of the Waitakere ranges, you'll feel a million miles from anywhere.
The camp is set up close to hosts, Alec and Pip's home - but in it's own little corner of the property. It's a fantastic group holiday option, consisting of two luxury guest cabins and two beautifully renovated caravans - sleeping up to 10 people.
A short walk through the tall native bush surrounds, connects the bush accommodation with a large camp kitchen, living and dining area. The outdoor deck has spectacular panoramic views - the ideal spot to enjoy the twinkling lights of Auckland in the distance, or the sparkling night sky above.
Surrounded by nature, you'll see native birds like fantails, tomtits, tui and native pigeon dart about in the early evening. A pretty stream meanders through the bush nearby. A short walk through the bush takes you to a glade near the stream with a comfy swing bench for relaxing amongst the trees. At night you'll hear the sound of water trickling over the rocks and the morepork calling from the treetops.
Wharerangi Forest Camp exudes a warm welcome to city-weary folk. Upon arrival, you're immediately immersed in the tranquil and relaxed atmosphere. The harmonious vibe helps you quickly forget the busy life you've just left, to enjoy peace and quiet, breathtaking views, unspoilt natural bush and golden sunrises.
