The Bridge to Nowhere Lodge is a unique place. Located deep in the Whanganui National Park wilderness region, we are the only Whanganui River accommodation of this kind in the area.
Perched high above the river and surrounded by native bush the only access is by the lodge’s jet boat service, canoe, by foot or helicopter.
The Lodge offers comfortable double/twin share accommodation along with family bunk rooms. For groups we have the capacity to accommodate 25 people:
Either cater for yourself in our kitchen or sit back and relax and enjoy a generous buffet dinner and breakfast in the morning. Our licensed bar offers a selection of New Zealand wines and beers to compliment your meal. Enjoy your meals in the dining room or on the balcony overlooking the river.
There are many things to do whilst staying with us:
Wander around our farm and feed the animals. We have sheep, cows, horses, miniature ponies, alpacas, goats, pigs, emus, turkeys, chickens, dogs and a peacock.
Canoe or jet boat from the Lodge across the river to Teiki Marae, explore the Marae and meet the locals.
Take a tour to the Bridge to Nowhere or try a jet/canoe trip option to explore the river.
In the evenings take a stroll and discover our glow worms.
Listen for the distinctive call of the endangered native kiwi.
Gaze at the clear skies and spot the Southern Cross, the Milky Way, satellites and the billions of stars.
After spending a night or two with us return to Pipiriki on the jet boat or canoe.
With over 40 years of living, working and playing in the park
we have an extensive knowledge of the river tracks and their secrets.
