This is a wonderful high country sheep station one day expedition showcasing the Queenstown region. This expedition travels through to a beautiful, very private, high country sheep station. With a guaranteed variety of tracks, diverse stunning scenery, local area commentary, gold mining history and memorable experiences, this expedition brings it all together.






At 8:30am we meet at the One Mile Car Park on Queenstown’s Lake Esplanade.


After a safety talk and explanation on radio and convoy procedures we set off to explore a very private high country sheep station and its huge vistas. Plenty of time is allowed to soak in the mountains, river, and raw scenery. We head out to a remote back country hut for lunch before returning through the station, allowing time for a hands on go at gold panning or to just chill out.

Once we are back through the sheep station boundary gate, opportunities exist for an afternoon of lake fishing or a gentle 1 1/2 hour walk around an alpine lake.
