Experience the region & beyond from RF

Centrally located, our farm is a perfect base to explore from!  

As a family, we know and love where we live. We have spent a lot of time exploring and enjoying our backyard, particularly in the past two years. Here are our family’s top local tips /must-do’s!

Riverside lunch and a 1-hour raft or kayak trip with our friends at Awastone – Mangaweke Adventure Company: 

Enjoy a scenic 40-minute car ride up State Highway 1. Meet your friendly guide for a 10am start. All of your equipment will be provided for the 1-hour experience on the river. Amazing photo opportunities and memory-making with your family on the river. Suitable for all ages. Our 7 and 10-year-old kids can’t stop raving about this experience. Relax riverside after your experience and enjoy your lunch from the onsite Cafe.

$110 per person for lunch and raft/kayak trip

White Cliff Boulders and riverside lunch with our friends at Awastone – Mangaweke Adventure Company: 

This is an awesome trip that starts from Awastone too. The White Cliff Boulders are simply breathtaking and a must-see! Meet your friendly guide at Awastone for a 9.30 am start and 2.30 pm finish. Relax riverside for a drink after your experience.
