You’ll be picked up in our comfortable 4WD Land Cruiser from either the Centre Port terminal, outside Wellington train station or outside the iSite Centre in Wellington city.

You’ll be driven northwest of the city for 20 minutes out to the rural Ohariu Valley, travelling past local farms with sheep, cattle and horses. The real excitement begins as we embark on the 24 kms of purpose built wind farm road where you will be able to stand directly underneath one of the 26 wind turbines located on the farm. Our first stop will have you feeding out hay to the wild Kaimanawa horses who are decendants of the first wild horses discovered in NZ back in 1876.

Back into the Land Cruiser and you will travel past sheep and cattle.  There will be plenty of photo opportunities throughout the tour.
Your guide will be giving information throughout about the general day to day operation of the farm and what’s involved with working with 6000 sheep, 400 cattle and 100 horses.

The next stop is at one of the massive wind turbines. Feel and hear the power of this magnificent 111 metre tall feat of precision engineering as it rotates its blades directly right above you!

We then head out to our shepherd’s cabin on the cliffs where complimentary afternoon tea is served while you enjoy stunning views across the Cook Strait and the South Island.
This is where the Pacific Ocean merges with the Tasman Sea. Experience New Zealand’s natural beauty and get a glimpse of what the early settlers must have marvelled at when first arriving in this untouched and rugged country.

We make our final stop at Ohariu Stream, which runs through the property. Here you can hand feed our wild eels.

Finally, you are driven back to your destination having experienced a slice of the real rural New Zealand.
