Hunting and fishing

The Galatea Valley, of which Murupara is part, along with the Te Urewera ranges and Kaingaroa Forest teem with game and fish with many a trophy trout having been caught in our waters. Indeed, the region is regarded so highly that World Fly Fishing Championships have been held here.

Living as we do on the banks of the Rangitaiki which is open all year round, people are often to be found with a rod in hand. We have both top class local guides and tuition available through the camp and can provide packed lunches by arrangement if you are here to fish in the wide variety of rivers and lakes.

For the hunters, deer and pig are the main game, with smaller game birds such as duck, quail, pheasant and others all available when in season.
