Mesopotamia Station is a 25,000 acre Canterbury High Country Station, nestled between the Two Thumbs range and Rangitata River.
A fully operational “station” (the New Zealand term for a ranch or large farm), Mesopotamia runs approximately 11,000 merino sheep, 3000 deer and 500 cattle.
There are a range of very rustic accommodation options, all extremely basic, but perfectly suited to a weekend of biking, hiking, fishing, hunting or pure reclusiveness.
The nearest town (Peel Forest) is 1 hour away, and the only lights you’ll see are probably stars! Remember, Mesopotamia is still primarily a farm – so don’t expect dinner service or valet parking!
- Hunters Cottage – 3 bedrooms (sleeps 13)
- The Cookhouse – multiple bedrooms (sleeps 30)
- The Rowans – the old homestead (sleeps 12 people)
Activities in and around the farm include:
- Fly fishing in the Rangitata River
- Mountain Biking
- Rafting, with world-famous Rangitata Rafts
