Ohakune - Where Adventure Begins

Ohakune is at the southern gateway to the Tongariro National Park, and known as the Carrot Capital of New Zealand. With Mt Ruapehu's ski fields nearby, it is also known as the aprés ski capital of the North Island. It’s a great location and with so much to see and do it is no wonder the town's slogan is “where adventures begin”.

Ohakune is not only a winter desination. In summer it is a fantastic base for the many outdoor activities on offer. From the many Mountain Biking and Walking Tracks, World Renowned Trout Fishing, Tongariro Alpine Crossing, to Canoeing on the Whanganui River, there is truly something for everyone.
