The Adventure : A 40km return jet boat adventure to remember. Jet boat down the Whanganui River, skimming over rapids and deep still water, enjoying the breathtaking scenery of farmland and bush clad hills.

Take your time climbing the short staircase up to Lauren's Lavender Farm, Café and Giftshop.  Enjoy the sound of the river and native bird song. Don't forget to look up and admire the native bush canopy above you. Once there try Lauren’s Lavender products and wonderful gift ideas from their gift shop and/or enjoy the delicious coffee and cake available for purchase from the cafe. Wander through the rows of lavender and enjoy the view of the river and surrounding native bush. 

Pull up a chair, close your eyes, listen to the birds and relax within the peaceful ambiance this café provides.  

Then return by jet boat back to Cherry Grove, Taumarunui.

(If you think the stair climb may be too strenuous for you then let us know in advance and we can arrange for you to disembark at Ohinepani Landing and to be collected by the Laurens Lavender Farms vehicle.)
