Yarrangobilly Caves House
This is newly restored in mid 2013. Owned and operated by NPWS,
they have done a superb job of restoring it.
There are two wings, offering different standards of accommodation.
The 1917 wing is quite luxurious, with ensuites and an amazingly
well equipped kitchen. The other wing is more basic and more communal,
but also cheaper. You can book out a whole wing for a group.
It is a great base for the surrounding area: eg long flat plain
and out to Blue Waterhole and the canyon beyond. Plus of course
the caves, and the thermal pool.
In planning for his walks in NZ early in 2012, Tony Hickson found
it helpful for the group to pay for The Bush Club to be a group member
of YHA NZ for a 12 month period to March 2013. This has given them
useful discounts on accommodation which have easily exceeded the cost
This membership card is available to any Bush Club leader. If you
are organising or planning a walk in NZ, do get in touch with Tony
( find his email in the walks programme) and he will mail the card
to you so you and your group can benefit from the membership.
Waikato Ski club lodge on Mt Ruapehu can be used as a base over
summer for outdoor activities.
The lodge is fully equipped with a good kitchen and lounge area
and sleeps up to 34. The location would provide easy access to a
number of walks such as the Tongariro Crossing or around the Mountain
walks or even just for enjoying the stunning scenery on the Mountain.
Bookings can be for any number of people and for as little as
one night or for as long as you require.
Mt Ruapheu is a very popular destination, with most accommodation
being very expensive.
As the ski season is only 3 months long, the Waikato Tramping Club
is offering accommodation to visitors over the summer months when
the ski field is closed. This helps the club cover the costs of
maintaining the lodge.
The tramping club owns the lodge and there is information regarding
the location and charges on their website. http://www.wtc.org.nz
