Things to do in Raetihi

The Raetihi Holiday Park is perfectly situated next to a number of family activities.

 

Between December – March enjoy the solar heated, covered swimming pool right next to the Holiday Park!!

 

Take your kids over the road to the town playground which is modern and well maintained by the council. Make sure to bring your roller blades or skateboards - as there is also an outdoor skating rink (and basketball court) on the parks grounds.

 

The Raetihi Squash Club is inviting – on those rainy days what better than to challenge your friends to a friendly game of squash. Just cross the road to the court and the game will be on!! If you want to be out in the sun and need the challenge, how about make use of our town tennis courts!!

 

Talk to us about hire for any rackets/ balls you will need.

 

Our Holiday Park sits alongside the Makotuku River which flows from Mount Ruapehu. At the lower level of the Holiday Park is a small swimming hole – take your children for a swim- it is truly gorgeous (the campground dog, Rosie, would love to play fetch with you while you are there).

 

If a short walk or run is what you would like to do the Makotuku River walkway runs from one side of town to the other.

 

The Raetihi Holiday Park is also home to our towns popular Glow Worm Grotto. You can only see the glow worms at night so bring a torch, and come and ask for directions.

Raetihi – the gateway to Adventure

A huge range of activities is available within a short distance of Raetihi including skiing, fishing, hunting, tramping, kayaking, and mountain biking or simply getting away from it all.

 

Canoeing the Whanganui River is an absolute must do in New Zealand. It is one of DoC’s nine great walks, and Whanganui River Canoes operates from right here at the Raetihi Holiday Park!!

The Bridge to Nowhere has been identified by the AA in their top 101 must do’s for Kiwis. Raetihi is the closest town to the Bridge to Nowhere Jet Boat Tours base, with a supermarket, restaurants and bars.

 

There are plenty of walks up or around the mountains, including the famous Tongariro Crossing and the Round the Mountain Track. Shuttles can be arranged to meet you at our Holiday Park to get you to the Crossing.

 Mount Ruapehu is an amazing sight all year round. There is nothing better than sitting on one of our many decks and taking in the view of the mountain. In winter we are the perfect base for your ski holiday. The Raetihi Holiday Park is only a ten minute drive from Ohakune where you will be at the base of the mountain. In summer the ski lifts are open to take you towards the summit of Mt. Ruapehu with its' stunning Crater Lake.

Trout are plentiful in the area as it is sparsely populated and well stocked. To go trout fishing you will need to have a fishing license.

 

Guided tours are many and varied and drop-offs or pick-ups can be arranged for that hunting trip, or bike ride.
