Welcome to Prana

Prana is based at Opoutere/Ohui, alongside a 5km long pristine piece of Eastern Coromandel coastline. 

We are a family run venue for the New Year Festival, smaller summer Events, Weddings, group Workshops and personal Retreats.

Prana land is a peaceful sanctuary where people naturally move towards transformational healing, personally and universally. A place that empowers a strong sense of 'connectedness' to something great: A gathering place for kindred souls! 

Our philosophy is based on the vision that a conscious culture is best facilitated when people are positively encouraged to discover the best in themselves and others through individual and collective creativity, healthy attitudes, self development and being in tune with Nature. The more we focus our energies on shaping our shared future, the more joy and fun we can create! We like to think of it as;

...where Creativity meets Awareness...

For each respective Prana event our guiding force is this philosophy and it leads us to a connection with everything that is greater than ourselves, whether we practice yoga, meditation, dance, gardening, singing or any other art form!

Prana New Year Festival 2015

Welcome to Aotearoa’s 
Conscious & Creative Celebration of New Year!
Your summer holiday for the whole family and whanau in positive Conscious Community! 

New Ticket Pricing!
Read about all the changes before ordering your ticket!

A Friend of Prana Pass is $165! you’ll also need to buy a camping & parking ticket. You must be a mailing list member for this special offer! This ends on 30 April 2014 or when sold out!

An Early Bird is $225 till end August or until sold out! (If you are reading this after 1st May 2014, don't miss out next year, make sure to sign up now for other special offers throughout the year!) 

New! Ticket instructions: If you have a promotional code already (Friend of Prana) click on the promotional code link just below the ticket prices. Then choose your entry tickets for all that are coming, your car pass and click on ORDER NOW. You will land on the next page with additional CAMPING options.

Coming by Car? Our aim is to minimize car traffic, maintain safety, and encourage you to car pool! It saves on fuel and contributes to a less polluted Planet. Most of our site is CAR FREE. A SHUTTLE SERVICE is provided from the standard car park to all camping areas. See Map below.You can purchase your car parking pass here online at any time for $40 and at the gate upon arrival for the Gate price ($60) (standard parking). Prana land is a barefoot paradise and all areas, hubs, beach and stages are within 5 minute strolls.

Camping & Tent options are additional to your entry pass. Choosing your options is fun and easy. There are also practical guidelines about camping during the New Year’s festival & pictures for your reference so there's no confusion. Small and Medium tent passes can also be bought last minute at the gate. But Large and Extra large tent sites have to be prebooked (they sell out, limited spaces).

Campervans and Motorhomes park in the Valley Camp, and if we can secure extra space, we'll extend the options. But if you know for sure you want to sleep in your vehicle, you'll need to get your special ticket early as they sell out! These are limited!

On Arrival Day Usually you will find a que of cars outside the Prana Gate. Make sure you have refreshments (humor&snacks) with you. You will get processed by our gate crew who scan your printed tickets. If you don't have a ticket you need proof of identity to look up your ticket under your name. You will get the appropriate passes for your vehicle and tenting. Park attendees guide you to your parking spot and will help you to transfer your belongings to the Shuttle Service. All belongings go into the trailer and it is a good idea to minimise your loose items and pack smartly to facilitate this process smoothly. You will be brought to your (reserved) camping spot. Hold on to your ticket all this time, it is like your boarding pass...

Before you click on ORDER NOW... have a good look at where you would like to camp. Valley Camp and Beach Lane are standard prices. Ponga Grove and Forest Camp are popular for their excellent shade. Standard parking is a ten minute walk from the festival site. Sleeping vehicles are only allowed in the Valley Camp. Valley Camp parking numbers are limited and have to be pre-booked.

We have made Youth & Child passes a fixed price throughout the whole year! These are separate tickets (so you can purchase them even after you have gotten your Friend of Prana or Early Bird Adult pass) with the condition that a Guardian or Adult (25+) accompany these people.

There are no Family options anymore: you just pick the Add-ons which fit your situation! Families are very varied these days so it's a modern system for modern times!

There is a new category for Young Adults aged between 18 and 24! (It's sort of like a Student rate but we realise not everyone between these ages is necessarily a student but most probably on a low income or be a young family in the making)

The Premium camping areas are set to Forest Camp and Ponga Grove they are closest to the festival hub and provide excellent shade. The tent options range from small to large. The larger tent sites are limited in number.

In a nutshell: Everyone pays just for the space they use. No car? No parking fee! Please car pool with friends! If you are a backpacker, and all you have is a 1.5 x 2 sleeping tent it's free camping for you! Free camp spots are allocated by the camp stewards.

Many things will stay the same: Toddlers are free, fresh bore drinking water from every tap, showers, friendly vibe, whanau connection, amaaaaazing beach and random acts of spontaneous joy and kindness!

For Non-Members: Early Bird Passes Available now. Adult (25+) $225 / Young Adult (18-24) $195.


Prana caters to those individuals who are seeking spiritual sustenance to enhance their enjoyment of celebration together with Like-Minded people.

Prana Retreat remains one of the few locations in New Zealand where festival participants celebrate this special event in a Family Friendly natural way.

Extensive planning goes into the choice of entertainment and workshops offered at Prana New Year Festival. Organisers attribute the safe, friendly reputation and atmosphere to the selectively invited audience.

We do not rely upon any corporate sponsors, grants or alcohol sales to fund this event. This experience is powered solely by our enthusiastic participants and their advance ticket purchases, which forms the size and depth of the Prana experience and help us to get started early on in the year in booking the best acts and workshops. We strive to keep tickets accessible and we are extremely pleased to be able to offer Prana New Year Festivals to our community at such an incredible fair price.

Prana Festival Team.
