Enjoy a personally guided tour of an 18,000 acre family owned and managed high country sheep station (aka ranch) in the comfort of a 4-wheel drive vehicle.
Gain an insight into life on a NZ high country sheep station (nee ranch), as you explore some of the diverse scenery; personally guided by one of its owners.   Climb to the top of Centre Hill (approximately 850 metres above sea level) to experience panoramic views of the surrounding countryside.  Then, relax with a wholesome lunch and a glass of wine at Barretts hut.  Originally built as a musterers hut, this private cabin is situated in the foothills of the Takitimu forest, amidst stunning surroundings.   Drive through beautiful native beech forest on your way home.  If time allows, you may stretch your legs for a short walk to visit Productus creek, site of New Zealand's oldest fossils.
