Dick Frizzell

Te Ori Paki from the Taupo, Ngati Tuwharetoa tribe and the Tuhoe, from Te Urewera, shared his unique philosophy and Maori cultural beliefs with guests.

Our Huka Lodge Sommelier led a tutored Gin Tasting Experience in the Wine Cellar focussing on the exciting taste and fragrance of our very best New Zealand boutique gins.

Simon Jolly, fishing guide extraordinaire, came along to talk about his love of fly fishing, the heritage of Huka Lodge founder, Alan Pye, and the current resurgence of fishing, especially the gentlemanly art of casting a fly.

Dick Frizzell, engaged with guests about his work as an artist, and his life, in his usual amusing and highly entertaining way.
