Tira Ora



Kia Ora and Welcome

Tira Ora is a beautiful land, located in the Pelorus Sound of New Zealand.

 Nature and wildlife have been preserved for guests from around the world to enjoy.

You will hear native birds singing, the refreshing roar of rushing rivers,

you can watch the tides come and go, and see green leaves dance in summer breezes.


Enjoy nature's ambiance, a peaceful place on earth,

the grandure of the mountains, where every creature has a worth.

Walk along rocky shores, or swim in our clear bay,

unwind, then refresh... It's the Tira Ora way.

Cascading waterfalls, new sights to see...

Tasty home-cooking, organic gardens & baked treats.

Enjoy another adventure, or recline near a stream,

then relax in your chalet when you're ready to dream.

You are very welcome.

We look forward to seeing you soon.

"Nature itself is the best physician"


“The best remedy for those who are afraid, lonely or unhappy is to go outside, somewhere where they can be quite alone with the heavens, nature and God. Because only then does one feel that all is as it should be and that God wishes to see people happy, amidst the simple beauty of nature. As longs as this exists, and it certainly always will, I know that then there will always be comfort for every sorrow, whatever the circumstances may be. And I firmly believe that nature brings solace in all troubles.”
-Anne Frank, The Diary of a young Girl-

"In silence, we are better able to listen to and understand ourselves;
ideas come to birth and acquire depth;
we understand with greater clarity what it is we want to say
and what we expect from others;
and we choose how to express ourselves."
(Pope Benedict XVI)
