We, Allan & Dawn Metcalfe have lived and worked in the Huntly area for over 30 years and have cultivated a strong farming and community background. Our new conference and adventure centre has grown from years of experience entertaining people and helping them have fun. Our vision is:

To deliver the best experience possible for our visitors!

Both of us are keen salt and freshwater fishermen (there's some debate about who's the best) and we regularly trek the bush for days at a time to hunt, fish and photograph New Zealand's wilderness.

We just can’t believe how lucky we are to have all this available to us in New Zealand!


Allan has farmed all his working life and for recreation he has engaged in all forms of hunting and fishing, both in New Zealand and overseas. His love of field archery has led him to represent New Zealand twice, and many an animal or fish around the globe have fallen by his arrow. He was the New Zealand Bowhunters Society president for 20 years, and both he and Dawn were made lifetime members in recognition of their contributions.

Allan has run corporate sports and events for more than 20 years, and has a special skill in helping people relax and enjoy themselves.

Special Warning – Allan loves to tell his hunting stories, so be careful not to get him started unless you’re into that sort of thing!


Dawn worked for many years as an environmental manager in the fields of mining and electricity generation. Her expertise in RMA issues and consultation has seen her working in many communities around New Zealand - from Whangarei in the north to Ohai in the south. She is still involved in this field through a regular lecture series on RMA and hydro.

Dawn loves the environment, and often walks the bush and mountains with her camera and a smile on her face. She is a founding member of a community group called Waikato RiverCare which is focused on replacing the weed infested lower Waikato River banks with native plants.

Her planting regime in her home gardens also includes mainly native trees, and she encourages her visitors to stroll among the bush and paths she has developed.
