8 of us spent 4 days at Arapawa Homestead and had an awesome time - we really want to go back next year. We did plenty of walking and fishing, and next time we'll bring mountain bikes. The family are really great taking us hunting, horse riding and on a tour of the paua factory. It was a great weekend, in a beautiful location at the entrance to Tory Channel - one of NZ's unknown gems. Mar 2016.
