Welcome to Huntly

There are so many things to do and fun activities in our region for you and your family to be part of. A five minute drive takes you to the coal fields museum, where you can learn about our towns mining history, or why not take a train ride on the PUKEMIRO STEAM TRAIN. During the summer months Huntly speedway offers a great Saturday night out. It's just 5 minutes north of the hotel. Or you can try the rodeo just 5 minutes south of the hotel.

Candyland is very popular with the children! Take part in one of their shows and make your own candy, just a 10 minute drive away.

Also you can stop and spend a day at Waingaro Hot Springs where they have bumper boats, hydro slides, and trampolines together with an animal park. For those who like the outdoors, our area boasts lots of beautiful walkways. Two minutes from the hotel, take a walk around Lake Hakanoa and check out the Green Cathedral. This walk takes around 1 hour and is quite flat, so its great for children with pushchairs and anybody that would like an easy stroll.  Try the Waikato riverside, where fishing can be very rewarding with large carp some up to 1 meter in length.

You can also hike the Hakarimatas. Complete with suspension bridge, this area is ideal for picnics and paddling. This is also very good for children. For something more challenging try the Taupiri mountain walkway. This walk takes about 1.5 hours. The track is well maintained and well marked with rest stops on the way up.

If you are into water sports Weavers Lake is a great place to go water skiing or biscuiting. For those who don’t mind travelling a little further, visit the Nikau Cave. This is well worth a visit with its stunning cave formations and gloworms. If you would like to visit any of these attractions, just ask our friendly staff and they will point you in the right direction.     

Also just outside Huntly on the same road is the mining museum at Weavers Crossing. Well worth a visit.
And of course just south of Huntly  on the main south road at Taupiri there is the Taupiri mountain maori cemetery where the royalty are buried.  This site on the main road overlooks the Waikato river and further down at Ngaruawahia is the kings marae which is situated right on the banks of the Waikato river. This is where the Waipa river and Waikato river join. The river is very good to koi carp fishing these are best caught with a bow and arrow (an annual event is held to do this when many are caught and good prizes are to be won.
