Capital Kiwi

We are proudly supporting the mission to restore a large-scale kiwi population to our own backyard. The Capital Kiwi team have set 4,000 traps, spanning 23,000 hectares to the south and west of Wellington.

Stoats are the target species, as adult kiwi can defend themselves but juvenile kiwi are vulnerable.

After years of meticulous trapping, the first kiwi are due to be released by the end of 2022.

Our History

Four Generations

In the early 1920’s and after serving in WW1, Captain John Eastwick set sail from the United Kingdom for New Zealand. By 1926, he had purchased and settled upon Papanui Station. In 1955, the Captain’s son Dick and wife Peg took over Papanui and the running of the farm. They had a vision to protect the pristine environment and continued to successfully develop the farm by purchasing surrounding land.

Jonny and Mildy Eastwick took over the farm in 1988. Realising the challenges of the land but the beauty it had to offer, they couldn’t resist sharing this spectacular property. This inspired them to launch Boomrock Lodge in 1997, develop The Track in 2002 and create The Bunkers in 2009.

The fourth generation of Eastwick’s to grace the land, Tom knew he was destined to stay on the farm. Like his father, he wanted to share this gem of a place with the world. After returning from living in the UK he created the concept of Pipinui Point, a luxury coastal retreat, developing it from the ground up, opening in September 2020.
