At the end of the Timber Trail Cycleway you'll find
an Eco Lodge in the heart of New Zealand’s countryside

Welcome to the Timber Trail Centre

The perfect place for tranquility and adventure

The Timber Trail Centre is a little piece of heaven at the end of the Timber Trail Cycle Way and on New Zealand’s 2500km Great Walking Trail (Te Araroa). The Centre is one of only two providers of accommodation and food at the end of the Timber Trail Cycleway.

There’s a trout-filled river on our border, and plenty of places to relax - a secluded outdoor woodfired bathtub by the stream, hammocks under the great Walnut Tree and a great communal soak available amongst the native trees in our old hot tub for 10. Nearby there’s a beautiful 30 metre swimming hole with a sandy beach for BBQs, forest walks, an Alpaca Farm and Lavender Gardens.

We are an Eco Lodge in the heart of NZ’s countryside, with our own organic gardens and orchards, the purest water from a natural spring, buildings made of natural and recycled materials and a transition programme full energy self-sufficiency.

The Centre is within easy reach of most parts of the North Island (and via plane, bus or train from elsewhere) and in one of the Southern Hemisphere’s great adventure and relaxation playgrounds.
