Lake Heron Station


Lake Heron Station is a spectacular 19,600 hectare high country station two hours drive from Christchurch. We offer charming high country accommodation and the opportunity to experience the uniqueness of life in the heart of the South Island of New Zealand.

Set in a stunning basin, our backdrops are glaciated mountains, tussock-covered hills, beech clad valleys and scenic Lake Heron.

Lake Heron Station is the ideal destination if you love to travel off the beaten track. Hike, bike, fish, stroll out to feed the pet sheep or simply relax by the fire… the scenery is spectacular whatever you choose!

We have restored 2 historic station buildings to provide you with comfortable and well-appointed accommodation. Join us for an active outdoor holiday or a relaxing break away from city life - Lake Heron Station offers a wonderful setting for both.
