Whenua Iti Outdoors Base
Whenua Iti Outdoors is rurally located in the top of the South Island, in the Tasman District. Just five kilometres from the township of Motueka, and 40 minutes drive north of Nelson City, Whenua Iti Outdoors is central to three national parks – Kahurangi, Nelson Lakes and Abel Tasman and well as within short driving distance of several conservation areas including the Mt Richmond Forest Park.
The Base of Operations at Lower Moutere is set on 7.5 hectares of park-like grounds, with mature native borders and flat sweeping lawns. The head offices, equipment sheds, meeting halls and overnight facilities are located in one corner. In another corner is the 13 metre abseiling tower, the 8 metre high ropes course and the low ropes course, in between on are orientation courses, obstacle courses and large lawns for games and camping.
On and off site
The location of the majority of programmes is a mix of onsite and offsite. Multiday programmes often start and finish at the Whenua Iti Outdoors base. Often groups will overnight onsite, or day programmes will utilise the tower and ropes courses.
The site is also available for private or community hire. It is a popular wedding venue.
