Wayne’s mission is to provide guests with a genuine unpretentious and thoughtful experience which encourages relaxation and reflection. Huntaway Lodge is the fulfilment of a long-held dream for Wayne. An opportunity to help create an environment that promotes the best that Aotearoa has to offer. A commitment to showcase New Zealand’s world class producers, growers and artisans. An advocate of locally sourced and sustainable products. Land, earth & sea. Huntaways kitchen gardens provide much of the produce for our bespoke lodge dining experiences. Matched with award winning New Zealand wines.
