Filling up 1807 mountainous sq km between Hanmer Springs and Blenheim, Molesworth Station is NZ’s largest farm, with the country’s largest cattle herd (up to 10,000). It's also an area of national ecological significance and the entire farm is now administered by DOC.
Visits are usually only possible when the Acheron Rd through the station is open from November to early April, weather permitting; check with DOC or at the Hanmer Springs i-SITE. Note that the gates are only open from 7am to 7pm. Pick up DOC's Molesworth Station brochure from the i-SITE or download it from the website.
