Bridge to Nowhere Accommodation

The Bridge to Nowhere Lodge is a unique place. 

Located deep in the Whanganui National Park wilderness region, we are the only Whanganui River accommodation of this kind in the area.

Perched high above the river and surrounded by native bush the only access is by the lodge’s jet boat service, canoe, by foot or helicopter.

The Lodge offers comfortable double/twin share accommodation along with family bunk rooms. For groups we have the capacity to accommodate 25 people

With over 40 years of living, working and playing in the park
we have an extensive knowledge of the river tracks and their secrets.
Visit the Whanganui River, “Let us show you our world”

In addition to the Lodge, we have our own private campsite

We are 9km or 1 1/2 hours paddling below the Mangapurua Landing where you probably stopped to walk into the Bridge to Nowhere.

The campground is about 100 meters up stream from our Bridge to Nowhere Lodge on the same side of the river, so if you are canoeing you will see it first. bar!. The campground was fully upgraded in 2014.

4 Cabins with awesome THICK mattresses, picnic tables, cook house, bbq’s and more…

Campers are welcome to come and visit us up at the Lodge and enjoy a drink or two from our fully licensed bar. It is a 5-10 minute walk up from the campground, just follow the track and go up the steps! If you would like to stay at the Lodge please book in advance by emailing us at or ring us on 0800 480 308.

We look forward to meeting you!
