Farm Tracks

As an optional extra with your stay, take advantage of the marked tracks each offering a different experience including native bush, wildlife and spectacular panoramic views.

Our farm tracks can be explored by foot, bike or your own horse.

All tracks are self-guided, and access is included in the cost of your accommodation.

We have paddocks, water and washdown facilities next door to the shearers quarters.

We also have a donation box to go towards the riparian planting of the Akitio river track!
