Ross and Annie Palmer are some of New Zealand's foremost potters.
Tukairangi Gallery is less than 5 km from our lodge.
Here are Ross and Annie in Tukairangi Gallery surrounded by their work. Ross describes himself as a 'painter on clay' and when you see his work you will understand why. Annie is a potter in her own right but many of the ideas for glazes and their combinations originate with her. Ross and Annie 'spark off' each other; they each inspire the other to new heights in creativity. We have several of their pieces in our Lodge.
Ross and Annie have big hearts. They welcome people to their gallery and love to talk about their work and what it is they are attempting to achieve through their art.
We are lucky to have them as our friends.
Beautiful views and accommodations! We loved our stay! It was well equipped and exactly what we needed to enjoy our stay. Our hosts were wonderful and have one of the most beautiful gardens. We enjoyed the hot tub after a long day of hiking and driving and it was perfect. The view is...

You will not find better hosts or a nicer property. Heather and David set the standard for hosts. The property is just extraordinary and the warmth and friendliness that Heather and David provide are alone a reason to visit New Zealand.
Heather and David were so extremely lovely! Our room had the most comfortable bed, and the breakfast spread was indulgent, more than one could possibly ask for. The backyard has a spectacular vista of Lake Taupo, truly magical.
