Join us for a two-night Getaway!

We’re ditching the big smoke and exchanging it for the crisp, fresh winter air near Mt Ruapehu.

You’re invited.

This is all about creating some breathing room for you! We want to give you the opportunity to break away from the city for a few nights. We are not planning any activities, etc. This is just a chance for you to spend quality time in a rural setting, make friends, take a breather.


Accommodation is at Raurimu School, which has rudimentary dormitary facilities with shared bathroom and kitchen, as well as a lounge. The kitchen is fully equipped – no need to bring your own pots, pans, utensils, cutlery or crockery. The bedrooms will be heated; the lounge has a fireplace. You will need to pack your own bedding and bring your own food.

Saturday night 24 August 2019

Sunday night 25 August 2019

You do not need to book for both nights. You’re welcome to book for one night only, if you prefer.

Everyone! However, under 18’s need to be accompanied by a parent / guardian.
