YHA Ohakune for Groups


Book the exclusive use of YHA Ohakune Station Lodge for hosting large groups providing an outstanding setting for family reunions, school groups, weddings, corporate functions, weekend escapes and other memorable special occasions.

Guests enjoy the exclusive use of extensive facilities including shared and private rooms, full kitchen amenities, two lounges, fireplace, central heating and a hot outdoor spa pool.  We offer a complete all year round experience in an affordable and stunning environment.

In winter, guests return from their day of skiing or other seasonal activities to the warmth of a roaring fire and all the comforts of home. During the brilliant Central Plateau summers the scene shifts to outdoor pursuits with barbecues, friendly games of cricket, or simply relaxing on the verandas overlooking the peaceful native gardens all the while taking in the breathtaking views of Mt Ruapehu.
