Shopping, Restaurants, Culture…

There are a few interesting towns and cities within an hours drive from the farm.
A small supermarket, pharmacy, petrol station, library, art gallery and even a excellent restaurant – The Mayfly – are available in Lumsden, 8 km south.

Five Rivers might not be a big place but well worth going for a look at the fabulous art gallery, a good coffee or a great meal – breakfast, lunch and dinner – all available at the Five Rivers Station, 7 km north.

Gore – “the Trout Capital” of New Zealand is a plesant town with a “farming atmosphere”. You will have lovely mountain views on the drive back home. 40 min drive.

Te Anau is known as “the walking capital of the world”, but it’s also a nice place to spend the day, visiting the glowworm caves, the Wildlife Park, the DOC information centre & museum, go souvenir shopping or watch a good movie at the cinema. 50 min drive.

In Queenstown there is a constant holiday atmosphere – not many tourists miss visiting this beautiful city when travelling in New Zealand. Therefore there is a great choice of restaurants, shops and tourism facilities. Take the gondola up the mountain for splendid views. 60 min drive.

Drive south to Invercargill, Southlands mayor city. A genuine kiwi city with friendly people and beautiful parks. Cheaper shopping than in Queenstown and Te Anau and the home of Southland Museum and Art Gallery. 60 min drive.
