Camp Glenorchy Eco Retreat
This new, innovative and sustainable destination captures the essence of community, connection and respect for our planet.

NZ’s first Net Zero energy guest accommodation includes cosy self-contained 2-3 bedroom cabins, comfy bunkrooms, powered RV sites, shared kitchen, dining area, BBQs, fireplace and lots of communal space. Visitors will love the artist-designed campfire shelter and stone mosaic walkways.
NZ’s first NetZero Energy accommodations are set just 40 minutes north of Queenstown at the head of sparkling turquoise Lake Wakatipu, in the heart of the mountains.
Hand-crafted, artful buildings and special touches throughout echo Glenorchy’s unique natural and cultural past. Come settle in where state-of-the-art sustainability, comfort and fun are designed to delight!
Welcoming families of all ages, amenities include NZ’s most scenic views, large shared kitchen and dining room, ensuite bathrooms and showers, artist-built campfire shelter and outdoor BBQ cooking facilities, guided tours of Camp Glenorchy Eco Retreat's world-class sustainability features, and free local activities booking services. And Mrs Woolly’s General Store, right next door, offers fresh-made healthy takeaway breakfast, snack and picnic foods, meals you can cook at the Camp kitchen, supplies, gifts and anything and everything you might need or want while you’re nestled away at the gateway to Paradise.
With so many ways to enjoy Glenorchy right at your doorstep—from dozens of trails, to renting bikes, horse riding, jet-boating, and visiting and petting farm animals (and more!)—you may find you never want to leave this magical place!
The Camp Glenorchy Eco Retreat Project
You'll be inspired by this accommodation that is a modern-day inspiration with some of the best and most innovative sustainable building, energy and composting ideas from around the planet.
It will provide visitors with a unique opportunity to experience first-hand how careful design, healthy materials and practices allow Camp Glenorchy to generate as much power as it puts back into the grid each year. As well, our goal is to use 50% less water than similar facilities, conserving resources wherever possible. Our hope is to educate and delight our guests, inspiring visitors to make sustainable choices in their own homes and communities. Read more on this incredible project here >>
