Experiences

On the Helena Bay Estate there is a wide variety of activities available. For those who wish to relax, lounging around the pool interspersed with fossicking in the seawater rock pools adjacent to the Lodge is a great way to while-away a pleasant day. A newly-laid Astroturf tennis court is adjacent to the Lodge. Trails for hiking and biking have been cut through the bush and down to the private beaches on the property. The Lodge has the latest Trek mountain bikes (two with electric motors). When exploring the farm you will meet the alpacas, donkeys and Wagyu cattle (all behind fences!).

The long-term view of the owners of Helena Bay Lodge has allowed substantial investment to be made in the property. A comprehensive pest and predator management program has been introduced, with fantastic results. The native trees spread across the property that had been ravaged by possums have seen a significant rejuvenation. The introduction of new breeding ponds for the endangered pateke (brown teal) duck have proven very successful, with a number of breeding pairs making their home here.

For those who enjoy being on the water, we are on hand to launch the paddle boards and sea kayaks. We also have fishing tackle available for guests to fish from the pontoon or one of the beaches. Using our electric four-wheel-drive buggies, with a gourmet picnic on board, is a great way to explore the property.
