  • A Fantastic Experience
Don and I reckon we live in the most beautiful place in New Zealand. We were lucky enough to have bought our farm some 17 years ago. We began life at Puponga with a "bull beef unit" (cattle), but moved onto the horse trekking a couple of years later. It is a very family-orientated business, and our main focus is on having a great time and giving people a chance to live their dreams, something we Kiwis don't realise…that we are so lucky to live here.

Don and I still get a real buzz out of watching a rider who has waited a lifetime to gallop down Wharariki Beach. The feeling is just "bloody awesome".

We are, I guess, very proud Kiwis. We reckon we live in the best place in the world. We love the lifestyle we've created and have the ultimate job.

We look forward to meeting you, and showing you our corner of New Zealand.

"What a fantastic experience... Thank you."

  • Feel The Thrill
The fish is ready, the rods are waiting! We're open daily for a fishing experience like no other!
Catch your own prime freshwater King salmon and have it fresh or ready to eat on the spot.


Situated on the banks of the Anatoki River with a tranquil backdrop of native bush, you can relax and enjoy this unique experience without the hassle of bringing your fishing gear and getting a fishing licence. There is no entry fee and all the fishing equipment is provided free of charge.
You only pay per kg of catch which includes the cleaning of the salmon.

Most people like to have it smoked but we can also cut the fish into sashimi (finely sliced salmon served with wasabi and soy) or just cleaned and vacuum packed fresh, ready to take home.

It doesn’t matter if you are Rex Hunt (famous fishing pro) or you have never fished before. If needed we shall give you a short introduction and demonstration to fishing and you can even purchase extra fish bait to hook up the big one!

All fresh Anatoki Salmon are harvested and dispatched within the same day, delivering a fresher, better quality salmon to your door.
