Okopako Lodge Hostel Reviews


Okopako Lodge is situated on a family farm and has large decks with panoramic views of the countryside, native bush and Hokianga Harbour. Reasonably priced accommodation within a rural eco-farm and gardens setting.

Double, twin, family and shared rooms are available as well as campsites and campervan parks with a separate amenities block. Ideal for family and tramping groups.

Fresh organic produce, homemade bread and farmhouse meals also available. An organic vegetable garden, established fruit trees and a worm farm are features of Okopako.

The accommodation facilities run on an energy efficient lighting system. Gas hot water and cooking throughout.

Stargaze while listening to Morepork and Kiwi call at night. DOC walkways begin at the gate and half the farm is covered in native forest.

Not far from Opononi and Omapere beaches for Hokianga Harbour activities and a short drive to Waipoua Kauri Forest. The area is known for its relaxed natural beauty and vibrant arts community.
