While many guests choose to make this beautiful site a stop along their walking, cycling, or horseback journey on the Otago Central Rail Trail, there is plenty to do in this part of the South Island as a destination of its own. On site, glampers can spend their days wandering lazily through the tranquil peony gardens, reading on the front porch, or biking parts of the Rail Trail. The host would be happy to advise glampers on the best local hiking trails and fishing spots and even take them on a 4WD tour off the beaten path. Water lovers will appreciate the close proximity to the Taieri River, where popular activities include swimming, kayaking, and fishing for trout.

History buffs won’t want to miss out on the historical gold mining town of Hamiltons, which has a newly restored cemetery and goldfield. Adventurers might want to take a hike on the Western Rock and Pillar Conservation Area route to admire stunning views of the Maniototo Plains. If visitors have access to a car, a day trips are possible to Sutton Salt Lake, New Zealand’s only inland salt lake, or to Alexandra, where there are numerous vineyards and wineries boasting Central Otago’s famous pinot noirs.
