Coffee and Cow Drench

We are located next to one of the best cafes in Wellington… Groundup Cafe. Situated in Pāuatahanui Village, you can make a day of it by popping next door for an amazing coffee, club sandwich, burger or sausage roll. Then once your tummy is full you could go for a wander around the inlet or the Pāuatahanui Wildlife Reserve to do some bird and wildlife watching.

If you are looking for a more adventurous walk or mountain bike ride then you could head a few kms up the road to Battle Hill Farm Forest Park. There are also some big beautiful native eels there that love being fed sardines, but watch your fingers!

Pāuatahanui Store

Living Rural is based in the heart of Pāuatahanui Village, in the same red barn that you have always bought your local farming and livestock supplies from. It is a family-owned and run business and continues to deliver great service with a friendly and knowledgeable team.

The village has a population of around 1,000 people and is a popular destination for recreation and relaxation. There are several beaches along the inlet, as well as a number of walking and cycling tracks.

Pāuatahanui is a historic village with a number of old buildings, including the Pāuatahanui Homestead, which was built in 1844. The village is also home to the Pāuatahanui Wildlife Management Reserve, which is an important wetland habitat for a variety of birds and other wildlife.
