Description

Onuku Farm Hostel offers accommodation ranging from tent and van sites to private and dorm rooms to huts and stargazers. Located on the edge of the Pacific on Banks Peninsula with the next-door neighbours being Antarctica's penguins, Onuku Farm Hostel is the perfect spot to unwind and explore nature be it on a family-operated dolphin swimming or kayaking trip or one of many breathtaking coastal walks. We don't have five or six stars we have the Milky Way. And our unique stargazers wooden tents with see-through roofing are how best to enjoy it. Together with 14 tent sites and our budget dorm 'Tophut' they make up our walk-in campground that is located in a tranquil clearing amidst Kanuka trees. We proudly employ sheep labour to look after it, so all you have to do is make yourself at home and enjoy the great vibes. Our van park is nothing short of camper van heaven. Sitting on a flat grassy area 200 metres above sea level, it will spoil you with the most stunning view into Akaroa Harbour that you can get without a pilot's license. In fact, it's so good we're often required to help start the engines of vans that refuse to leave. Facilities include: Toilets Hot showers Washing machine Free Wi-Fi Communal stove, hot water sink, and fridges (no utensils) Common area Barbecue Slackline Van Park open from October to end of April.
