There's many local activities on hand. Right outside 'The Wharf Hub' is a free water park offering fun and river swimming.

Some like to use the opportunity of staying at 'The Wharf Hub' for exploring the isolated and very picturesque East Cape area, Waioeka Gorge (NZ's longest), or take day trips to Whakatane, Rotorua and White Island.
Being also so close to the Opotiki CBD allows you to leave your car at home and take a 5 minute walk to bars, great restaurants, Museum, and explore the historic Opotiki Township on foot.
But we think The Wharf Hub holds it own as a destination worthy of a voyage to.
