Waiuta Lodge | Waiuta historic village
Smack in the middle of the old gold mining town Waiuta that was the basis for one of New Zealand’s most productive gold mines. Some historic buildings remain, but this isn’t one of them.
The New Zealand Forest Service restored the old hospital in 1985, but it burned down before completion, so they built this structure the following year.
It needs to be booked, and it’s locked. Mostly used by school groups, etc, and has facilities to suit.
