More information

Open 7 days.

Karamea has a relaxed ‘off the beaten track’ feel. The area is a natural wonderland, with the beginning or end of the famous Heaphy, Wangapeka & Karamea-Leslie Tracks and the Oparara Basin with the Honeycomb Hill Caves & Limestone Arches in the Kahurangi National Park.

Karamea is a secluded haven, situated between the mountains and the sea, on the river flats of the Karamea River and the coastal plains. Snuggled into the warm northwest corner of the South Island, it caters for the tramper and caver, birdwatcher and botanist, geologist and mountain biker, hunter and fisherman, the more adventurous kayaker and rafter... or simply those seeking a family holiday ‘away from it all.’

Information and fuel are available here.
