Kawhatau Outdoor Education Centre
A 60 bed accomodation venue at the base of the Ruahine Ranges, in the Manawatu.
The facility itself is fantastic for primary / intermediate kids and the area is an adventure play ground for high school students. Making it perfect for any family or community group too.
The Kawhatau Outdoor Education Centre offers a wide range of activities to meet the needs of your group. The activities below are available as individual options or can be combined to create an action- packed programme. We believe sequencing activities gets the most out of both the activity and your group, so we aim to always develop an activity plan to maximise your group's experience.
Various team building games
Mountain biking (portable course - focus on cycle safety and confidence)
Wilderness expeditions / journeys*
The Duke of Edinburgh Training, Practice Journeys and Expeditions
Rafting and white-water adventures
