Canterbury inland scenic route: Christchurch to Lake Tekapo

Erewhon Station

Erewhon Station @Nz Frenzy South Island New Zealand Erewhon Station @Nz Frenzy South Island New Zealand

Leaving the lakes, continue further along the same road to Mt Sunday, known to Lord of the Rings fans as ‘Edoras’.  The summit is an easy to moderate ½ hour climb (one way) for impressive views of the Rangitata River valley, across towards Mesopotamia Station on the southern side of the river.  At the very end of the road lies Erewhon Station, nestled right among the Southern Alps where muscle power does the heavy lifting. The harnessed Clydesdale horses are regularly used for farm work. The station’s horse stud can be harnessed and is available for a wagon tour. There is accommodation for visitors interested in staying awhile on a high country farm.
