ABOUT MŌRUNGA 

We are a Franciscan property of 5 acres with the goal of providing a destination for people to come and learn, or just enjoy the peacefulness and tranquility our space offers. Walk up the top and look over the valleys and ranges, or head through our hazelnut orchards and feel the stillness beneath the boughs. Head up to our church room and quiet space and sit under the beautiful San Damiano cross and look out at Mount Ruapehu. We love our space and look forward to sharing it with you.
