    Te Aroha Holiday Park

    by

    This site has a wild range of services. Backpackers, tent sites, power sites, on-site caravans, tourist flats, cabins and self-catering cottages. I stayed in the self-catering cottages. It is very close to the nature and it is too close where there are cockroaches and inserts over the lamp. As expected in a holiday park. I had a good deal for NZD40 but personally I can't sleep with inserts so I decided to sleep in the family room overnight. It was a special experience anyway.

    Oh Yeah. The light was not working for the living room.

Travel Tips for Te Aroha

Visitor Centre and Information Point

by allikat

Te Arohas Information Centre was built as the ticketing and information office for the Domain - it has been an information Centre of sorts for more or less the whole time it has stood. A pretty little building typical of New Zealand, there is a small museum inside with displays about the local areas history as well as the usual information desk and wealth of leaflets. Forming part of the Heritage Trail itself, this is the place to come for a map and leaflet in order to explore Te Aroha on foot.

Call on the Information Office.

by kiwi

This information office is situated in a really nice old building and if you call here, get a sheet about the surrounding Domain and it's history.
Postcards, souvenirs and gifts are also available, DOC (Dept of Conservation) maps and booklets too. The staff are really friendly and helpful. Open Mon - Fri, 9.30am - 4.30pm
Weekends, 10am - 3pm.

Tel: 07 884 8052

Coming in to town, cross the Bridge.

by kiwi

As you come in to town from the West or South, you get to cross this lovely old bridge. OK it isn't the Golden Gate, but it is nicely painted and rather quaint for small town New Zealand.
I particularly like seeing it as the sun goes low in the sky and makes the lovely colour glow a bit. Looks kinda cool with Mt TeAroha in the background.
At this point you cross the Waihou River, which is the same river where many kilometers upstream I introduced you to the beautiful clear waters of an amazing springfeed headwaters. Link to that page here. The hot pools!!

Main street.

by kiwi

They have made the main street rather cute with colours and stuff. Here is the old bank, brightly painted and now a café. I didn't eat or go into the café so can't really make a tip about it, but just to show you how they are presenting these old buildings.

When the mountain speaks!

by kiwi

Even when the mountain is exherting her powers over Te Aroha town, there is a certain romance about the feel there.
We are reminded at this moment, that the mountain rules and there is nothing we can do, but to leave, if we don't like it.
