What to do at Aultmore
Relax Unwind Explore
The best thing to do at Aultmore is nothing!!
Or at least nothing you don't want to do. You are welcome to enjoy the peace & quiet of our extensive gardens. You will find plenty of nooks and crannies to explore. There are secluded sun trap corners for sunbathing or you could spend a lazy hour or two floating on lilos in the river. For a warmer dip, relax in our alfresco spa pool just outside your bedroom. You might like to catch a nice juicy trout for your dinner. Good fish have been caught right beside our property! We have a barbecue available for you to cook up your catch.
Painters, writers and meditators will find the allure of the river an easy way to spend several hours. Just idly enjoying the view from one of our riverside eyries is a good idea, whether the gazebo terrace, the woodland swing chair or the double hammock on the garden room promontory.
If you feel slightly more energetic you could try your luck or polish your skill at croquet.
We have plenty of space for parking boats or other water toys, so if that is your thing, bring yours along. There is a boat launching ramp just minutes away in River Road. From here you can launch your boat and explore a huge stretch of the Waikato River, all the way up to the Aratiatia Rapids and down past the Orakei Korako thermal wonderland to the hydro dam at the end of Lake Ohakuri. You will be able to find natural hot pools and lovely picnic spots along the way. You can fish or waterski to your heart's content.
