Molesworth Station

Molesworth Station is New Zealand’s largest high country station, covering almost half a million acres (185,000 hectares). The historic station supports NZ’s largest cattle run.

It is located inland of Blenheim, between the Inland Kaikoura mountains to the east and bounded by the Wairau River to the west. Mt Tapeanuku, highest mountain outside of the Southern alps, dominates eastern views standing proud at 2,885 metres. And Hamner Springs marks its southern limits.

Molesworth Station is a New Zealand icon. It is a place of interest and fascination to history-lovers and tourists alike. Its size and situation in some of the South Island’s most spectacular, diverse and remote high-country areas and its historic buildings make it a popular destination.
