Originally built in 1895 down at the Homestead, HEADQUARTERS is from a time long since gone. For 130 years this hut served as a refuge for cattle drovers and deer stalkers throughout South Canterbury. During the 1930's it was transported by horseback to it's present location where it has sat in the clouds ever since.
With the flick of a switch you can remove yourself from 21st century comforts one second, to the days of the early pioneers the next. Speaking of pioneers, down the hallway on the western wing you’ll find SHACKLETON'S, our exclusive bolt hole that pays homage to our natural history and the Heroic Era.
