Welcome to beautiful Camp Taringatura - an asset for Southlanders and citizens of the world!
Unlike many places you will stay Camp Taringatura is not in a town. Set in the heart of rural countryside and surrounded by native bush, Camp Taringatura invites you to explore some of the last remnants of the Southland Plains Podocarp Forests. Practically extinct now only 1% of these forests remain. Camp Taringatura sits on the banks of the Dipton stream, in the middle of New Zealand’s greatest province, Southland. Close to great lakes, rivers and mountains all ready to explore. Queenstown and Milford Sound are just one and a half hours drive away. There are many things you can get to, at and around camp: swimming, wandering, biking, playing games on the spacious paddocks, nature watching, fishing, climbing... what ever the heart says you need to do. Built by the Presbyterian Church in the 50s, many a story has been told and is yet to come! Your Grandparents or Great Grandparents just might have slept in the same hut as you... how cool is that!
Camp Taringatura is a great place for a great camp and it’s open 365 days of the year!
Gather in the 260m2 main hall with enough seating, cutlery, plates, cups and glasses for at least 100 people. Enjoy the fire place with lounge area, sound system with microphone, and dancing area to let loose and go bonkers! (There is It’s CAMP TIME! Camp Taringatura, a unique New Zealand location! also a blackboard and pinboard for all the important stuff.) The separate kitchen area (with a service window into the hall) has a walk-in-pantry, three ovens, water boilers for tea, six sinks, pots and pans and plenty of room to cook up a storm! Camp Taringatura sleeps 64 people with extra mattresses available if required. There are separate toilets and showers for boys and girls.
We are back for all the fun times after an awesome makeover and we hope to see you soon!
