  • Luxury Lodge with quality furnishings throughout
  • Stunning landscaped gardens with panoramic mountain views
  • Six luxurious suites all with private bathroom and mountain or garden views
  • Potential to develop further

Kokonga Lodge, which features 6 ensuited guest suites, is situated several metres from the Otago Central Rail Trial, and was built in 1993. A separate owner/manager’s 2 bedroom cottage is situated on the property, and enjoys privacy, with established landscaping to ensure the owner/managers can enjoy their own private lifestyle when the lodge is operating, approximately 8 months of the year, hosting 12 guests across 6 luxury suites.

School House: As well as the Lodge, the property is also home to the original Kokonga School, built in 1897. Its building remains on its original site. The Lodge is built on the site of the old school teachers residence.

The old school building allows for possible future development for additional tourism accommodation, or used as the manager/owner’s accommodation, allowing the current modern 2 bedroom cottage to then be utilised as additional guest accommodation for the lodge.

This profitable lodge complex has been upgraded during the last 3 years to the very highest standards and this is reflected in the outstanding reviews from their guests, see our reviews section for details.

Location: Situated in a peaceful rural setting, across the road from the Taieri River and with direct access to the world famous, Otago Central Rail Trail. The 5 ha property (approximately) is strategically located on the rail trail and features workshops, vegetable gardens and extensive landscaping, and additional income is generated with the annual Lucerne crop from the main paddock situated at the front of the property.

Clientele: Kokonga Lodge provides quality accommodation for independent or travel groups, either walking or cycling the Otago Central Rail Trail, or guests exploring the Central Otago region.

Functions & Events: The Lodge offers intimate special occasions for groups, such as weddings, birthdays, anniversaries or corporate functions.

Approximate travel times to Kokonga Lodge: Helicopter access can be arranged, and transfers and picks ups are available to guests currently.

  • From Queenstown 2 hours 15 minutes
  • From Wanaka 2 hours 9 minutes
  • From Oamaru 1 hour 32 minutes
