  • Grand Edwardian Lodge
  • Overlooking Palliser Bay
  • 5000 acre sheep station



Wharekauhau (pronounced “forry-co-ho”) is situated on a 3,000-acre sheep station overlooking Palliser Bay, 15-minute by helicopter or a 90-minute drive from Wellington. Surrounded by native forests, beaches, rivers, lakes and wetlands, the estate is a magical haven of peace and solitude from the outside world.

The main lodge recaptures the gracious lifestyle of a bygone era. Mullioned windows look out over landscapes of breathtaking beauty, with guest cottages located throughout the grounds.

Be sure to experience some of the countless activities we offer. Spice up your stay with a spot of archery, surfcasting, quad biking or horse riding - then wind down with a wine tasting at the end of the day.
