Myself and my girlfriend stopped in at Awaroa lodge on our second day of walking to grab a beer and some food after a long days hike. To get to the lodge you don't really add much time onto your walk and i actually think it is an easier bit of track than the skyline one which it meets up with.
We didn't get a chance to eat anything decent as we were there at the wrong time but all the snacks etc we ate were delicious.
We found it a little tricky to find at first as when you are walking from the north during low tide, the track take you off the beach and along the waters bed where a path leads off it. The path itself is unmarked but easy enough to notice as the lodge's boat was laying out front.
I wish we had the time to have spent more time there and also the money to have spent the night but we will definitely return in the future
