Poronui Mountain Bike Trip

Part of the Mahi Aroha Summer Programme: Explore the fringes of the Mohaka River and Poronui Station like never before.

Following sections of the Poronui poled route you’ll head toward a lookout point, which offers uninterrupted views of the mighty Oamaru/Mohaka river confluence. Settle down for a picnic lunch or for the more adventurous, head off on foot for the nearby Oamaru Hut.

This is an exclusive trip, so ensure you secure your spot and take advantage of this breath-taking opportunity; exploring areas not normally open for biking.

Meeting place: Poronui Station gate, at the end of Taharua Road off SH 5 south of Taupo

- Sunscreen
