Near Taupo, New Zealand
Poronui is a quintessential New Zealand destination preferred by discerning fly fishers and outdoor enthusiasts.
This 16,000 acre property is a wonderful playground for outdoor pursuits, with over 40 miles of private trout fed streams and 100 miles of private tracks for horse riding and mountain biking. Choose from world-class fly fishing for brown and rainbow trout; Olympic standard sporting clays; field archery; and trophy hunting for five deer species including the magnificent red stag. Alternatively, unwind in the steam room, sauna and gymnasium or enjoy an in-house massage or beauty treatment.
The property offers a variety of accommodation options including private guest cabins at the lodge, a glamping experience at the Safari Camp on the banks of the Mohaka River, and the impressive Blake House, a private villa providing five star accommodation for up to eight guests.
Poronui is a world away from major cities and their bustling restaurant scenes, yet the fabulous food and wine you will experience reflects New Zealand’s low key, no fuss approach to regional gourmet excellence.

We have been blown away by everything - hotels, food, people, golf, wine - the list is endless. You did an amazing job
Planning a 7 week trip is daunting enough without the complications of COVID cancellations, rebookings, and closures. Yet every connection, every transportation detail, every accommodation, every meal, everything was flawless.
From our arrival in Sydney .. to our last stop in Queenstown .. we will carry with us the best memories of our trip and all of your efforts. The incredible private boat tours .. the bespoke wine tours with the best guides .. our accommodations .. and the excellent itinerary and pacing, made for a perfect trip.
We can't thank Southern Crossings enough for making this trip all, and more, than we had imagined. You allowed us to see the best of your countries: the people, the beauty, the culture. Five stars, a blue ribbon, and a gold medal to everyone at Southern Crossings!
Your country, its people and your team could not have made us feel more welcome.
