Getting AroundYou are coming to Ahuriri River Lodge and Birchwood Station Homestead – it is not a canned adventure – this was originally a high country sheep station which had a hardy breed that lived here. We are located 25km up a gravel road which has several hazards. 500m further on from us the road becomes a 4 wheel drive only track …. There are several scree slips and potholes, you pass over several back-country bridges and ford a small stream. Weather events in New Zealand can be severe, the river rises and can cross the road, slips gets scoured by flooding and this little stream can become a torrent. 98% of the year you can travel in with a normal car – although a 4 wheel drive is a better option especially if you want to explore further up the valley by vehicle. IT IS YOUR RESPONSIBILITY TO GET SAFELY TO THE HOMESTEAD Other Things to NoteHazards, Insects , Cancellation Policy and Liability Ahuriri River Lodge accepts no liability for any costs or damages whatsoever. We do suggest Travel Insurance should this concern you.

Built in the 1870s as the main home on the ranch, the homestead was once the staff dining building and preschool for Makarora children. Now fully modernised, the homestead offers a spacious and comfortable base for exploring Makarora. Heated bathroom floors, wall heaters and a great fireplace ensure guests are kept warm in the winter. Summertime guests can enjoy a lovely patio area and private deck with mountain views and easy access to numerous raspberry plants. Breakfast foods are provided and left in your fully equipped kitchen. Other food options include a cafe just a few minutes drive towards Wanaka and another bar/cafe/restaurant a few minutes drive towards Haast. Book a guided farm-tour with us taking in sheep, cattle, deer and Himalayan Tahr with amazing photo opportunities along the way. For those after even more adventure, we are only minutes away from jet boat, helicopter and plane rides. Explore the area on foot, try your hand at trout fishing or visit the nearby Blue Pools. Our location means you could comfortably take a day trip through to the West Coast or visit Wanaka in the other direction. Extras: Cleaning (included); Linen (included);
