Owhango village is situated on State Highway 4, midway between Taumarunui and National Park in the central North Island. It is bordered on the east by the Ohinetonga Reserve, Whakapapa River and Tongariro Forest Park, and on the other sides by prime farmland.
Owhango’s location makes the village popular for holiday home owners and visitors. There is easy access to a range of outdoor activities to suit all levels of fitness and interest.

We have a primary school, cafe, garage (though no fuel sales), motel, accommodation lodges, cottages for hire, bed and breakfast/homestay places, and a local community hall which can be hired for a small fee.

The Owhango Domain, located at the north eastern corner of the township, is surrounded by majestic native forest.  It features a large playing field, children’s play area and unique bush-bound tennis court.
