The Exchange

The Exchange offers guests the opportunity for a secluded getaway, just off the usual tourist trail.  You will be able to relax to the sound of the Tui’s or walk through the mature forest to see the Kauri and Puriri trees.  A relaxing escape, for short or long breaks any time of the year.

The village of Kohukohu is an historic village right on the Harbour front with a Café, General Store, Art Galleries, Burger bar and Pub.  The historic walk through the village will show you its heritage as you wonder through the quiet streets and lanes.
