Your home away from home

The Makahika Outdoor Pursuit Centre is set among the forests and native bush in the foothills of the Tararua Ranges, 1.5 hours from central Wellington, or 45 minutes from Palmerston North.

As you venture through the gates, you get a sense of the challenge and excitement that awaits.



Challenge yourself. Push your boundaries and conquer your fears within a safe outdoor environment with trained staff.


Experience new things in the outdoors. Ride our 170m flying fox, abseil, face the high ropes, and survive in the NZ bush.


Discover new personal limits, understand your team-mates, form high performing teams and be part of 'making memories'.
