Opotiki i-SITE Visitor Centre Cnr St John & Elliott Streets
Phone 1

Home to hunting, fishing outdoor sports, kayaking, golfing and great access to a wide range of locations in the beautiful Eastland district.

Admire the domain’s 2,500-year-old Puriri Tree, highly sacred to local Maori.

The Opotiki district has over 10,000 square kilometres of native forest, a lot of it managed by the Department of Conservation, with huts for trampers and hunters.

Opotiki’s climate is equal to the best in New Zealand. The town is sheltered from the cold southerlies that are experienced in many other places.

For sheer natural beauty, magnificent coastal scenery and beaches, an equable climate, many places of historical and cultural significance, a gentle pace of life, and friendly Multi-cultural people, the Opotiki District is unparalleld anywhere in New Zealand.

Ideally & centrally situated in a rapidly expanding holiday area, Opotiki is the northern gateway to Eastland and all its attractions are within easy distance. These include thermal areas with delightful hot pools, many rivers and lakes well stocked with fish, bush country with hunting for deer, wild pigs, goats & opposum and with the Pacific ocean on its back doorstep, Opotiki is an ideal place for deep-sea fishing, boating, surfcasting, surfing & swimming. You may need to slow down a little to get the best out of this district.
