Our clients say:

Hunua Falls are a wonderful facility for our school choirs. We enjoy the peaceful atmosphere and the facilities are very conducive to choral learning.

We have been using Hunua Falls camp for our autumn university students camp. It’s a camp which has great options for accommodation, a great kitchen for self catering, and two good areas for group meetings. The scenery is beautiful, and the grounds are great too for fun outside activities.
