The Outpost is a private accommodation lodge in a remote corner of Kahurangi National Park in Golden bay, perfect for large groups, reunions or parties. Small groups, families and keen backpackers are also welcome.

[NB: Due to size and facilities for up to 28+ people, management reserve the right to assign bunk rooms to groups/families as well as accept other small groups during the same period unless groups size is sufficient or Exclusive Use rate of $650 booked.]

The native bird life is prolific in the surrounding bush clad hills. Listen for the night-time calls of ruru (morepork) or the dawn chorus and the deep booming of the native bittern from the Mangarakau Wetland Reserve.

This venue is particularly suitable for large family groups, groups of friends, educational groups, tramping clubs, photographic clubs, sports and hobby groups, bird watchers, 4WD groups or conferences, in a unique and beautiful environment. There are numerous walks through farmland, native bush, coastal land and around and over bluff headlands.

Possible activities include biking, caving, swimming, playing tennis, bird-watching, tramping, fishing, whitebaiting (in season), reading, climbing to the Lookout Tree, cooling off in the swimming pool, photography and relaxing on the verandah with a good book.

On behalf of our gruop of 12 senior cyclists I want to thank you for the use of your warm anf welcoming lodge. Comfy beds, well equipped kitchen, wonderful heating, good showers - it is a great spot.

This is an old school that has been adapted to sleep lots of people. It has a real West Coast flavour. We enjoyed it for an extended family gathering. It is now one of my special places.
