Quiz Night

Hāwea Hotel’s quiz night had a brief hiatus, but returned recently by popular demand. Rally some mates or rock up and join a team – the trivia is challenging and the prizes are definitely worth the hustle.

Our hotel, eatery & bar sits at the entrance to Hāwea Village and on the edge of Lake Hāwea. Which means we’re lucky enough to be amongst all the activities and events in the wider Hāwea region…

Access some of the country’s finest fly fishing spots, roll through a diverse set of tracks for either road or mountain biking, trek up to Isthmus Peak or calmly stroll around Johns Creek.

Get out onto that stunning lake for wind surfing, paragliding or kite surfing.

The usual boating, kayaking, fishing, swimming and beaching are all glorious on our doorstep.
