We are the closest town to the famous Tongariro Alpine Crossing, and transport is available daily from Parklands Motor Lodge.
Over the winter months we become a central haven for those planning a skiing holiday on Mt Ruapehu. Parklands Motor Lodge motel is less than one hour from Whakapapa Ski field, and the local thermal pools are a popular destination after a day on the mountain.
