nature trip - Workmans Camp
2010 was a busy year for us. We have been setting up a landing site in the middle of the bush with some small easy walks. The Workman's Camp has No phones, No Houses, No people. Just native trees and birds.
We call the site “Workmans Camp” as over 100 years ago a small team of men were building a road down the north side of Mokau River. This road was never completed but our landing site was used as a camp from these man for several years.
For the the real trampers out there, you can walk to the site over a nice tree covered hills and see that starts of a new two day Mokau River walk under development.
For the rest of us take a cruise on the Big Boat and visit the real New Zealand
Please note that this site is not used as a camp site today. No overnight stays will be allowed
Whitebait season Tours
September - November
It almost here again. Come and see the Mokau River at it most active time of the year. There are over hundreds of Whitebait fisherman and ladies ready to start the season.
From the MV GlenRoyal you can see all the action, Talk to the fisherman, and if you want, enjoy a amazing Whitebait fritter. All from the warmth and safety of the largest ship on the river. No matter what age you are you can see one of New Zealand's fishing traditions on the most popular River. No where else can you see Whitebait fishing like this. This is also when the bush is at it most impressive as springs start to arrive.
