Experience life on one of New Zealand’s most picturesque and remote high country stations.
Hosted by three generations of Mead women. Spend some time seeing what it’s like to live in such an awe inspiring landscape.
Start at the Lake Hawea Golf Course (also owned by the family) and be driven out in a farm vehicle. The stories will start immediately as you are absorbed into station life. The road in is famous with locals – blasted out of the cliffs in the 1960s there are sheer drops and cliff edges. The lake becomes more and more beautiful as you head north, and if you wish you can be dropped off to walk in to the shearers quarters round a headland while your luggage is driven ahead.
Once on the station, you have your choice of unguided walks (maps are provided), or can arrange farm activities depending on what is going on, or fishing on the world-renowned Dingleburn River. Station dinners with the team are a high point.
