Our Facilities

At Whenua Iti Outdoors we have 7.5 hectares of beautiful landscaped grounds in Lower Moutere (5 mins drive from Motueka), with mature native trees and plenty of grassed areas perfect for camping or outdoors-based activities!

We are ideally located to have 3 national parks within easy access – Kahurangi, Abel Tasman & Nelson Lakes – providing the perfect playground for our programmes.
