The Rimu Heights Story

Rimu Heights rests on the bush line of Maungatautari, Aotearoa, overlooking the Waikato Plains to the Kaimai Ranges. As you weave up the gravel track, edged by New Zealand native bush, it feels like you're entering a world of its own. Rimu Heights is uniquely framed by Sanctuary Mountain Maungatautari - a world class conservation project. 

Rimu Heights is a family owned dairy farm, with second and third generations currently contributing to the caretaking of this land. When the family first came to Rimu Heights in 1989 the soil fertility was very poor and the hills were yellow with ragwort - the farm often referred to as 'Golden Acres' by neighbours. Time, love and a keenness to see the land flourish, has motivated the transformation of the land. Now beautifully lush and productive. 

For some time, the family have felt an opportunity for a form of abode to be created here - believing this is a place worth sharing with others. Tawa Tent has been created as an off the grid eco living experience. It is a reflection of the values and spirit of Rimu Heights. It is a place of tranquility. A place for people to come and disconnect in order to reconnect.

Rimu Heights offers a number of spaces centred around and absorbed by the native bush. In each unique space, find yourself reconnected with nature, softened by its sounds, calmness and beauty.
