Set amongst beautiful gardens, beneath the impressive Mangaweka Mudstone Cliffs
and looking directly over the Rangitikei River, Awastone never fails to impress. 
Awastone hosts a licensed cafe set in a quiet garden, featuring a lovely patio looking out to the gorgeous Rangitikei River. Halfway round the Manawatu Scenic Route, it is a popular stop for car and motorcycle clubs and relaxed Sunday drivers. Open year round with different hours for summer and winter.


For the winter season, April - Labour Day weekend, the licensed cafe is open on weekends - Thur: 3pm-8pm, Fri / Sat: 8am-8pm, Sun: 8am-3pm.

For the summer season, Labour Day Weekend through to end of Day Light Savings, Awastone is open daily from 8am - 8pm for coffees, light snacks, bar meals and the campground reception. Between January and April, live music fills the area on Sundays bringing locals and the kind to catch up with friends or make new ones over relaxed entertainment.
