Molesworth Station Tours

Molesworth Station lies in the High Country between Marlborough and North Canterbury – a high, remote area surrounded by snow-capped peaks most of the year. A working farm as well as being a reserve, it now belongs to the Crown, having fallen into disuse through over-grazing and rabbit damage last century. Today after decades of intensive conservation Molesworth Station is a wonderful area to visit: remote and wild, with beautiful river valleys, high tussock land, mountains and pasture.

New Zealand’s pioneering farms were run by hard-working families, supported by a huge staff of cooks, musterers, seasonal shearers and of course the ever-present farm dogs. A land of extremes, with searing summer heat and drought alongside bitter snowy winters, horses were essential, now having been mostly replaced by farm bikes and 4WD vehicles. As New Zealand’s largest farm park, Molesworth Station holds a special place in the history of our nation, evidenced by the number of people who are drawn to visit it every year.
