About Us

The Craw Family has been farming on Banks Peninsula for almost 150 years. Long Lookout Tours is a blend of Farming and Tourism which we hope will make it sustainable for a 6th generation.

Andrew, (a 5th generation farmer) & Joanna, (a North Islander), met while both studying at University.   Since then each has worked in jobs obvious to their professions.  Joanna has been at Annandale since 2011, her role  to provide guests an experiential stay.    Many guests were looking to experience something uniquely NZ, and away from the crowds.   Long Lookout Tours was born and the first guided tour on the website was the  The Raupo Coastal Hike.

This venture has enabled Andrew, to combine his love of farming and location, with his enjoyment of sharing it with others.  Joanna enjoys the diversity of visitors to Annandale and is motivated to giving them a little taste of NZ hospitality and lifestyle.

Ultimately we hope to encourage conservation and sustainability for future generations.
