THE ANTIPODEAN FOUNDERS

His iwi affiliations with Ngâti Maniapoto and Ngâti Tama te Waipounamu are vastly important to him, and these values are reflected in how Antipodean runs its business and looks after our guests.

Dean is also an award-winning farmer who loves spending time on his dairy farm. Feel free to stop in for a cuppa.
