Nestled within the deep hidden valleys of New Zealand’s Forgotten World Highway is the ultimate way to explore rural New Zealand. Travel along decommissioned railway lines, through tunnels, over bridges and rivers and to townships that time forgot. Experience the Forgotten World from the comfort of a rail-cart, cleverly adapted to be self-driven along the tracks of the Forgotten World railway. There are plenty of photo opportunities along the way while taking in ever-changing vistas with our semi guided NZ rail tours.
Situated only 7km from the friendly township of Taumarunui, down the incredible Forgotten World Highway, lies Omaka Lodge, a boutique bed & breakfast and garden wedding venue. Well positioned on the crest of a hill, with magnificent views of Herlihy’s Bluff and Mount Hikurangi, this wonderful venue offers privacy and seclusion. Situated amidst working farmland, the Lodge and its beautiful expansive gardens are surrounded by the sights and sounds of everyday country life, where sheep and cattle dot rolling green-pastured hills, and valleys echo to the sound of never-ending birdsong.
Our guest accommodation consists of four beautiful bed and breakfast rooms (two ensuite) as well as a luxurious self-contained apartment. We are pet friendly (please contact us for details). Our accommodation rates include a delicious continental breakfast. During your stay you can relax in the comfort of your room, take a swim in our pool, play tennis, or simply explore our 10+ acres of grounds and meet our ducks and sheep.
