Aquatic Life – pristine & crystal clear

Humphries creek has our friendly eels which you can feed and spot the local adult Inanga.

The annual whitebait migration was an important mahinga kai resource for Māori all around Aotearoa. Certain districts were famed for their special products, for example, in the Waikato inanga (whitebait) were especially valued. Inanga were also taken during their downstream migration to the ocean when they were rich and full of eggs. Captured fish were either dried in the sun or on rocks. Preservation in this manner meant that the fish could be kept in an edible state for months.

During fishing season you can buy White Bait from our Camp Pantry and try your hand at making your own fritters – we’ll supply you with the ingredients & recipes.
