You know that feeling?  When you just want to get away from it all and stay on a grounded World War II New Zealand patrol boat?  You don’t?  Well, you soon will!

At Woodlyn Park you’ll discover the Waitanic, a specially converted ship previously used for submarine detection. Now four-unit accommodation, guests can choose between the Titanic, Britanic, Honeymoon or the Captain’s rooms. As former guests will tell you, the Waitanic makes for a ship-shape holiday home!

Woodlyn Park doesn’t just offer amazing motels.  There’s a whole host of adventures to be had during your stay.

Billy Black is a professional sheep shearer who puts on an unforgettable show for Woodlyn Park guests. Including a Kiwi bear, a dancing log and exploding pigs – sorry, a dancing pig and exploding logs – you won’t want to miss out on Billy Black’s Kiwi Culture Show!

And, if you still have energy left, why not visit the nearby Waitomo Caves, an amazing cave system with stalactites, stalagmites and even glowworms!

Along with the opportunity to try blackwater rafting and take in the breathtaking views for which New Zealand is famous, we really don’t think one could ask for more!
