Makarora Guide

The area of Makarora was once covered with thick forests, this lead to it being a key saw milling area, supplying timber to the Otago Goldfields. Tourism plays a bigger part in the area now with great options of jetboating, scenic flights and walks. We recommend the cheap group meal for only $12 around the bonfire or warm up your vocal chords for some karaoke action in the bar. This is a great place to stay nestled in between huge mountain ranges in Mount Aspiring National Park.
