Pukoro Bach was the camp manager's house for many years and is now available for visitors to use. It takes its name from the original name of the land block where this reserve sits.

Located in the campground next to the Parakai Springs Hot Pools, this bach is the perfect escape if you want to relax in a homely space. It is set in a green oasis within walking distance to a thermal pool offering.

You can also use the bach as a base for your west coast adventures:

  • mountain biking
  • horse riding
  • tree climbing
  • 4 x 4 or off-road motorcycling
  • beach rambles
  • fishing on the Kaipara.

Alcohol is prohibited at all times.

150 Parkhurst Road, Parakai

Directions and access

Main park gates are open from 6am to 9pm during daylight savings hours and 6am to 7pm during non-daylight saving hours.

Turn into the main driveway entrance to the Parakai Springs Hot Pools. Follow the driveway past the pool complex entrance and carpark to the locked gate. We will give you a combination code for the gate with your booking confirmation. Turn right to get to the bach.

You need to phone us on 09 301 0101 five days before your booking starts so we can give you the access code to retrieve the bach key.
