Experience the heart of the high country

Come and experience an immersive day in the heart of the high country.


A visit to Lake Heron Station, one of NZ's most spectacular high country farms, gets you completely off the beaten track and into the world of a fully operational station. Situated in the heart of the Canterbury Mountains, the surrounding landscapes are dramatic, making the drive out to the station an experience in itself. On arrival, you will be warmly welcomed by the Todhunter family and their dedicated team. 

Come and enjoy the richness of the countryside.

Enjoy a range of different activities that are designed to give guests an exclusive insight into the workings of a high country station.  


  • Farm tours - 4WD tours and a walk around the station.

  • Lunch at the historic homestead - meet the family and enjoy homegrown produce.

  • Feed the pet sheep - they are always hungry. 

  • Scenic flights - The Pilot's Choice. See local high country stations from a whole new viewpoint. 

  • Tour of the woolshed - learn about the process of producing our fabulous natural Merino fibre.
