The Meaning of Waiouru is derived from “Te-Wahi-Oru-Nga-Tangata” which translates into “The Place which all must pass through.”
Waiouru is the perfect place to break your journey when travelling up or down the Desert road on State Highway 1. Centrally located, the Waiouru welcome inn is a great base from where you can access all that the region has to offer.
The Welcome Inn is ideal for holidaying families, couples or busy corporates. It is our aim to make sure that your stay with us is as comfortable as possible here in the desert oasis.
