Welcome to Houghtons Bush Camp

Houghtons Bush Camp, Muriwai Beach, is conveniently located just 40 minutes from downtown Auckland; and yet it’s a world away. The camp offers affordable accommodation and outdoor activities for groups in a private native forest setting.

Save on travel time and expenses
If you’re from Auckland or nearby, Houghtons Bush Camp offers a genuine outdoor experience that’s remarkably close to home. You can save on travel costs and make it easier for helpers or specialists to support your programme. For visitors to Auckland, the camp provides a handy economical base for exploring the city’s attractions.

Exclusive use and flexibility to suit your budget
Catering for up to 86 people at a time, Houghtons Bush Camp gives your group exclusive use of the entire property for the length of your stay. You can choose to prepare your own meals in the commercial-style kitchen and make full use of the onsite activities, or hire professional caterers and adventure operators if you wish.

Designed with a wide range of groups in mind
Houghtons Bush Camp is an ideal venue for multi-day school camps, business team-building retreats, conferences and sports camps, as well as get-togethers for church groups, extended families and interest groups.

A wide range of local attractions
From the wild black-sand beach, 18-hole golf course and fascinating gannet colony to nearby hot pools and adventure attractions, there’s no shortage of local destinations to complement your onsite programme.
