“Your warmth and hospitality are extraordinary.”-- Howard and Barbara Katz, Maryland, USA

Price Per Night: $20.00 per person

If you are on a budget but you want to experience South Island high country outdoor living then Dunstan Downs has a beautiful spot ready for you.

Simply pitch a tent near the backpackers facilities then relax under the vast expense of awe-inspiring scenery.


You may choose to hike to one of our valleys or mountain tops for spectacular landscapes that have inspired artists for years. Stars never felt so close while a busy life never felt so far away.

You are also welcome to use the common kitchen, laundry and bathroom facilities provided by Dunstan Downs.
