“Great location, great venue”-- Vita Goertgensl, Christchurch

Four Wheel Drive Station Tour

With over 30,000 acres to explore, the expansive and rugged terrain at Dunstan Downs is a great place to experience one of our 4x4 wheel drive tours. This experience is for those that want to be ‘wowed’ by stunning landscapes and feel the land and lifestyle of this unique and vast open terrain.

The one day experience starts from either the remote township of St. Bathan’s and ends at Dunstan Downs Farmstay or starts at the farmstay and goes to Fat Man’s Lodge for lunch and back.

The day trip climbs and manoeuvres through isolated terrain that offers endless stories, mountain climbs, stream crossing and photo opportunities.

Morning tea at a picturesque spot, lunch enjoyed at Fat Man’s Lodge and a drink at the end of the day are all part of this memorable experience.

“Travelling through the valley, over the mountain top ( Old Man Peak) and seeing the endless snow- capped mountain ranges in the distance, then down into the valley to Fat Man’s Lodge for lunch is an experience I will never forget. To think that there were no other humans for 14km in any direction, only vast land and of course thousands of sheep. All I can say is ‘wow’ and thank you”.
