Experience life on one of New Zealand’s most remote most picturesque high country stations.
Hosted by the family and the close knit farming team, spend a few days seeing what it’s like to live in such an awe inspiring landscape.
Start at the 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 river etc. Station dinners with the team are a high point.
Discover Dingleburn is suitable for families and travellers in larger groups. The buildings, ‘The Cook Shop’ and ‘The Quarters,’ are rented out exclusively, so you will have both of these buildings to yourself.
