Unique experience


Paua Bay Farmstay offers a unique experience. Guests can escape to enjoy the activities of a working farm or can relax on the verandah listening to birdsong. Breakfast is served on the verandah or in the inviting kitchen where the noises of the start of a new farm day mingle with the sound of the sea. After breakfast guests can choose to help muster sheep or engage in other farm activities, gather shellfish or observe seals and the occasional penguin on the private beach. Book an activity thru our other website here.
