We are delighted to work nearby Orama Oasis, who have been catering for Glenfern Sancutary Guests for many years.

Let us know what you need and we can organise it for you. We can even deliver your groups meals to Mt Heal hut for the ultimate walking holiday!
Aotea Brewing brews awesome beer in an off-grid brewery for the local and visitor crew. Their beer won’t be found in a single-use bottle or can, as they are committed to reducing waste on the island and have refillers and bars where you can get your fill fresh from the keg.
