Makarora has long been an ancient traditional medicine village for the Waitaha Nation - the first peoples of this land. While our nomadic ancestors were travelling over the high mountain passes following the areas of seasonal abundance the village of Makarora was a place of healing and learning, a place of resting whilst healing both body & mind from past journeys and preparation for the trails ahead.

The Homestead Makarora holds that healing wairua (spirit)

Come stay & experience it!
