Welcome! Nau mai Haere mai !
WELCOME to the Murupara Motor Camp and to Murupara and Galatea Valley - Central Bay of Plenty - and the gateway to the beautiful 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. There is a small on-site dairy, Local Tourism Information Centre that also sells Manuka Honey from our area - Whare Honey and Manawa Honey.
Whether you need a unit, a camper or tent site, we are ideally situated just a few minutes walk to the river and five minutes to our family business DeCafe Murupara - Coffee , and the local shopping centre. We are the base for some of the local rafting companies and we can provide a driver to your destination for those who want to leave their vehicles in the safety of the camp while exploring the forests on foot or by mountainbike, 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.
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 such as mountain biking, bush tramping, or trout fishing !
