Baylight Exploration Centre


Camps, accommodation and venue hire for schools, corporates, families and community groups. Bay Light sits on top of the highest point of Russell, in the Bay of Islands. This stunning location is rich in both beauty and history.

Sunshine, sea and exploration surrounded by New Zealand history. Wide open spaces and open minds. This is more than just a camp. It’s a place to learn about ourselves about our country and about each other. And that’s the beginning of something special - a generation of New Zealanders who operate with self-awareness, assurance and empathy.

The Baylight property has 5 cabins and can accommodate up to 30 people for sleeping and 100 people on site. A large communal room with stunning views, completely private, laundry, kitchen, ablutions and outdoor space. Can be used for groups or families for relaxation, conference, meetings, development and time together.
