About Erewhon Station

Erewhon Station is a picturesque 35000 acre sheep & beef property nestled right amongst the Southern Alps of NZ. This Country provided a magnificent backdrop for the Lord of the Rings movie “The Two Towers”. Edoras, the capital of Rohan, was located on Mt Sunday at neighbouring Mt Potts Station.
The Station includes a large Clydesdale Horse Stud and we endeavour to use horses instead of vehicles. The work team are used regularly on the Station to do the cultivating work and in the wagon. We can tailor a Clydesdale experience for you ranging from a 1 hour wagon ride to a genuine NZ high country saddle or wagon adventure to our private hut in the mountains. Stay in our homestead or come for an interesting group day trip

Bookings are essential



Basically from Mount Somers you turn onto Ashburton Gorge Road which is signposted as Lake Clearwater. Stay on this road for one hour and we are right at the end. The last 40 minutes from historic Hakatere is on gravel road which is in good condition apart from some corrugations. You will pass Lake Clearwater / Camp & we are 25 minutes from there. Once Past the Potts river bridge (sealed) you will have three fords to cross. The first two are generally dry but can be rough after nor-west rain scours bits out. Just drive through slowly. The last ford by our hayshed is always wet but is an excellent crossing.
