Set in 16,000 acres of wilderness, Poronui is a historic fly-fishing, hunting and wilderness retreat. Accommodation consists of seven timber guest cabins, each with large balconies overlooking the Taharua River.
In addition, Blake house offers secluded and luxurious private villa accommodation for up to 16 guests or embark on a glamping experience in one of two canvas safari tents on the banks of the river. Share stories around the fireplace with fellow guests, or over pre-dinner drinks before a hearty meal of seasonal produce.
Why we like Poronui
Poronui welcomes all age groups with a wonderful opportunity for children to get back to nature. Spend a night in the isolated Safari Camp; fall asleep to the sound of the river and the crackle of the fire after a delicious meal by candle light.
- Steam room/hammam
- Kids club
Poronui is a playground for world class country pursuits including horse riding, mountain biking, archery, target shooting and trout fishing. There are 200 kilometres of cycling trails around the property. Cookery classes are available or spend time with a local tribal member and bushman to create a Maori feast using traditional gathering techniques.
