In the middle of Whangamomona is the unmissable grand old Whangamomona Hotel. Built in 1912 after the original burnt down, it's a pub offering simple accommodation and big country meals (breakfast and lunch $12 to $20, dinner $18 to $35). Accommodation plus meal packages also available ($145 per person). A new lodge has just been built 50m from the property with private bathroom facilities.
This is where you come to get your passport stamped ($2 gold coin community donation) and to grab a Whangamomona passport ($5).
