WELCOME to the Murupara Motor Camp and to Murupara and Galatea Valley - Central Bay of Plenty - and the beautiful gateway to the Te Urewera Rainforest!
There's so much to see and do in this superbly unique location that you'll need a few days to enjoy it all - and what better place to base yourself than the Murupara Motor Camp? Whether you need a cabin, or a camper or tent site, we are ideally situated in being just a minutes walk to the river and five to the local shopping centre. We are the base for all of the local rafting companies and also have a shuttle and tour service attached to the camp for those who want to leave their vehicles in the safety of the camp while exploring on foot or by mountain bike the forests, go fishing for the day or who want to have a guided tour of all the hotspots with a knowledgeable local guide.
Hunters ranging from the annual duck season to pig and venison hunters also stay with us, as do many international anglers after the trophy trout that can be found in most of our waterways all year round. We can provide great food, or send you on your way to sample the great menu on offer at the local pub three days a week.
Totally tranquil, our wonderful valley offers an escape from the city stresses that is simply second to none. Check out some of the places to see and things to do here such as mountain biking, bush tramping, trout fishing and look for special events such as Chef Master Classes or Murder Mystery Weekends here - or check out our fishing and hunting guides here. Better still, create your own event with us right here!
