Explore our dramatic, picturesque landscapes and thriving community. The Piopio area has limestone formations, native bush, rugged hills, river valleys and rich, rolling farmland.

Eat at the Night Owl or the Fat Pigeon Cafe, or try locally made berry ice cream at the Piopio orchard. Explore scenic drives and day walks.

Waitomo is a top spot for adventure tourism. The Piopio district has several breathtakingly beautiful cycling routes on quiet country roads. Or try black water rafting, caving, and abseiling at the nearby Waitomo Caves and Village.
