Here at Getaway Te Anau we believe it is important to give back to the community around us and those in need.
Not only do we have some great environmental initiatives that benefit some great charities, but we are also supporters of the below organisations.
Fiordland Conservation Trust - We have a dedicated “Getaway Fund” Set up with the Fiordland Conservation Trust. This fund receives not only donations from us, but all money from our Sauna bookings, DVD hire, and room servicing donations. This fund is used to support our beautiful local environment, in particular the Kids Restore the Kepler Programme.
