Deer hunting, trout fishing, tramping, adventure…and much more.

Triple Tui’s self-contained log cabin accommodation is the perfect base from which to explore. We are within easy reach of many of New Zealand’s best fly fishing rivers, Nelson Lakes National Park for tramping or deer hunting, white water rafting in Murchison, a day trip to the Abel Tasman National Park or visiting a Nelson Winery.

Trout Fishing

The Nelson region boasts the ‘most consistent’ fly fishing in the country. The area offers an excellent variety of clear streams and rivers, magnificent lowland and back country settings in pristine and relatively untouched environments. Triple Tui is accessible to the best fly fishing rivers in the region and Steve is available to take you on day excursions if required, pre booking is required.  Contact us to book a guided fishing trip. (Fishing license and your own gear is required).


Steve has many years experience hunting Sika deer in the North Island – Kaimanawa, Kaweka, Tararua and Ruahine Ranges plus Red deer, Chamois and Tahr in the South Island. He is available to take you hunting for multiple day hunts but only by helicopter these days as one day hunts are too hard for most people.  Pre-booking is required.

Contact Steve for local and/or North Island guided hunting trips. [email protected]. View Steve’s website Hunting Kiwi Style for more details.

Tramping/ Walking

Triple Tui is situated on the border of the Kahurangi National Park. Created in 1996, Kahurangi (meaning treasured possession) is one of New Zealand’s newest and the 2nd largest National Parks, at 452,000 hectares. There are more than 570 km’s of walking and tramping tracks in the park. The more popular, longer walks include the Heaphy Track and the Wangapeka Track, but there are short walks available at most road ends. Entry to the park can be gained from Triple Tui’s Riverstone cabin and just a 10 minute drive gives you access to tracks up to the Lookout Range, from there you can view Mt Owen and get magnificent views over the valley. There are also some lovely short bush walks on the property.

River Walks & Swimming Holes

The Hope River is a gentle flowing, tea coloured river which runs through Triple Tui, right by the Riverstone cabin. There are many access points where you can wander at your leisure up-river and view old railway bridges, have a picnic, view stunning waterfalls or swim in the clear, cool pools.

Nelson to Glenhope Railway

We are really lucky to have the remnants of the Nelson to Glenhope Railway run right by the cabin.  It is no longer a railway line but you can still see where it was and may even pick up the odd nail or bolt that was thrown aside when it was dismantled.  Walk up the river and discover the abandoned bridges.  If you are a railway enthusiast then this track will be of interest to you.   The actual station still stands in a paddock not far from here on the drive to Murchison.

Nelson Lakes National Park

Nelson Lakes National Park protects 102,00 hectares of the Northern-most Southern Alps. The park offers a quiet experience of tranquil beech forests, craggy mountains, clear streams, fields of tussock and lakes both big and small. A network of short walks explores the glacial features and forests. Longer tracks climb up through beech forest to view points high above Lake Rotoiti. Talk to Steve about some of the amazing places he has walked to in the Park and which walks will best suit your fitness levels.

Whitewater Rafting in Murchison

Exhilarating white water and rugged West Coast scenery which make rafting the Buller Gorge an adventure not to miss. Join Ultimate Descents on a raft journey through spectacular granite canyons for what is undoubtedly the Buller’s best rafting trip. “With the emphasis on fun and participation” Buller Gorge Rafting could well be the most enjoyable activity on our holiday.
