Unique Manawatu wetland and wildlife refuge

Around 27 years ago this 4.55 hectares near Opiki was purchased as bareland  – well most of it was wetland formed from an old oxbow of the nearby Manawatu River.

In the intervening years the owners extensively planted the perimeters of the wetland with hundreds of plants and it is now a truly unique lifestyle property hosting an amazing variety of bird life.  It also provides a great spot for family kayaking and other water based activities.

The spacious four bedroom home is hidden down a long private driveway beside the lake, yet only 20 minutes from Palmerston North or Massey University.

This property is now on the market and a represents a great opportunity for anyone who enjoys nature to own/become the next custodian of this small piece of paradise. See more details on our Lifestyle page
