Deep in Whanganui National Park the remote town of Ruatiti boasts many surprises for the adventurous traveller who makes their way here via winding roads.
Mellonsfolly Ranch, a complete old west town is fun park like no other, describing itself as deliberately remote and wild. Activities are outdoors and adventurous. It is built upon the legend of a Mr Mellon who may have struck it rich at a gold claim named Waterfall Mine. The wildness continues into the evening where a colonial courthouse doubles as a movie theatre and Wild West hotel style accommodation is available onsite. TVNZ's Kiwi Living show have made a little film clip, link below.
A hard core of regulars like to camp at the Ruatiti Domain over the summer and enjoy the remoteness, the river, Manganui-O-Te-Ao, which is recognised for trout fly-fishing. All respect the New Year Liquor Ban.
Services however are adequate and extras for visitors include a backpacker hostel, local hunting guide.
Check out the accommodation and other nearby attractions, the Mangapura track and access to the Bridge to Nowhere are just past Ruatiti.
