Play time for the Kids at Tirohanga!
Fun at Tirohanga is back to basics when it comes to kids. With a sunny Beach Front Location and the Dunes section of the Motu Trails right in front of the park, electronics are left in the tent... Well most of the time, a WiFi pay as you service is also available!
Dunes Trail for Kids
We have a large playground, the safe Dunes cycleway out front to explore, which the kids really enjoy cycling along to explore the coastline. This stretch of the Dunes Trail is very safe for kids even those who have only just learnt to cycle.
Combine this with a beautifully long and gradually sloping Flat Sandy Beach makes our location a haven for kids and adults to enjoy themselves.
Tirohanga Camp Playground
Entertainment over Christmas
We've had a long relationship with a church fellowship that comes in and organizes games, activities and adventures for the kids of all ages.
This happens over 7 days between Christmas and New Year, this programme has become a highlight with many of our returning campers.
A small creek nearby keeps the younger kids entertained. They love to dam it up and play in the warmer water making sand castles and boat races.
Take a kid fishing!
With a plethora of fishing options maybe it's time to take the kids fishing. Explore the Waioeka river from the main road, with a good set of polaroid glasses spot your quarry from above and then make your way down into the river. For the sea, set a long line / surfcast or if all else fails go out with the local expert Mike Ruru!
