Onuku Farm Hostel

Akaroa


Hours: 9am - 9pm

The longest-running hostel on the Banks Peninsula, offering the MOST affordable dolphin swimming trips in the Akaroa Harbour! Established 1980.

Description

Offering a slice of paradise embedded in a true Kiwi working farm, our Hostel, Van Park, and Camping Ground have been a temporary retreat for travellers since 1980. Stay in the original farmhouse in a double, twin, or dorm room, or drive into the Van Park for breathtaking views of Akaroa Harbour. Our hillside Campground (with full facilities) is available for tents, or you can fall asleep looking at the stars in one of our Stargazer huts. Hot showers, flush toilets, swimming beach, and hundreds of hectares of gorgeous, hike-able farmland are just a few of the perks. We also offer the area's most affordable Dolphin Swimming trip and an all-around unforgettable experience! With small group numbers and highly trained, experienced skippers, you'll see the Harbour's wildlife like never before. Wetsuit, snorkel, flippers, and transportation provided, with morning tea offered on board. Kayaks also available to rent for self-guided tours. If you want to stick to dry land, The Skytrack offers an evening under the stars with accommodation in a Stargazer wooden tent, followed by a full day's hike through Banks Peninsula farmland into the historic town of Akaroa. Spend a full 24 hours immersed in nature!
