Mokau River Tour
Flight duration approximately 85 minutes.
This tour includes the Jurassic Waterfall Adventure Tour and then carries on to the historic Mangatoi Station.
A real expedition and our all time favorite trip (the Jurassic Waterfall Adventure Tour)! Fly along the Taranaki coastline to the mouth of the Tongaparutu river, travelling up the Hutawai wetland which is the longest coastal wetland in the North Island.
We land the helicopter at the base of the Matapeka Falls and there’s time for a short walk or even a swim if the weather's good. Why not take a picnic or simply enjoy the tranquility.
The rocks at the base of the falls contain ancient fossils which are truly amazing.
This helicopter tour was reviewed by New Plymouth's Live magazine which can be read here.
We then depart and make our way out to Mokau River. On arrival, the pilot will take you on a tour of the abandoned woolshed, village and coalmines. This place just breathes history! Pack a picnic lunch and the pilot will boil the billy!
Mangatoi is on the Mokau river and is a great place to kick back and relax miles from anywhere.
Mangatoi Stations runs a herd of 400 Angus cattle on the old sheep station and a apiary harvesting Manuka honey.
