Alert Easter 2014: Molesworth Road has closed for the season four days early due to high river/stream crossings caused by heavy rain.
Molesworth Station is a spectacular and iconic high county reserve with a special and diverse biodiversity and rich farming history. Here conservation, farming and recreation go hand in hand.
When visiting Molesworth Station (New Zealand’s largest farm) be prepared for a land of extremes. This vast landscape contains craggy scree-scarred mountains, wide river valleys and tussock slopes as well as tiny inconspicuous endangered plants. Its weather ranges from scorching summers to freezing snowy winters.
Experience Molesworth for yourself during the open access periods, by car, bike, horse or on foot. Learn about the history from interpretation panels, camp outside the Cob Cottage, picnic by the mighty Acheron River or enjoy walks from 10 minutes to several days duration.
