Ruakituri Cabin

About this place

Ruakituri Cabin is right on the banks of the Ruakituri River which is renowned for world-class dry fly and sighted large brown trout fishing. Within easy driving distance of many of the country's best quality fishing rivers, this informal cabin is the perfect accommodation for the dry fly fisher. Located near the Ruakituri River, trophy trout are produced every season. Because the area is in a remote part of New Zealand, it is away from crowds and main tourism routes. This means a quiet, unique flyfishing experience complete with great catches. Although small, the cabin has electric power and is fully self contained. It has 3 beds, refrigerator, microwave, electric stove and all cooking and eating utensils plus all linen, towels etc. It has a small washroom and an outside toilet. Superb outdoor living with a fire pit (wood supplied) and an outside table overlooking the Ruakituri river. Suitable for fishing holidays, walking, swimming, tramping and hunting trips. Also room to pitch a tent and have a remote family holiday. Self-catered. Allow one hour from Wairoa, or 90 minutes from Gisborne.
