The region gained its early fame from the first owner of Mespotamia Station – Samuel Butler – the renowned English writer and author of the brilliant satire Erewhon, which he based on the wonderful landscapes found in the area. High country stations have a unique part in the history of New Zealand and your knowledgeable and friendly guide will entertain you with the history of the resilient families who broke in and farmed this wonderful land.
