Wharekauhau Country Estate

Wharekauhau is set on a 5,000 acre working sheep station on New Zealand's dramatic south-eastern coast in secluded Palliser Bay. The estate has won countless awards for its warm, convivial country hospitality that is blended seamlessly with elegant and graceful luxury.

The main lodge is modeled on an Edwardian Country Mansion with a grand hall, open wood burning fireplaces, mullioned windows and a warm country style kitchen. The 12 exclusive guest suites offer complete solitude and comfort in splendid yet unpretentious surroundings, each with wonderful views of Palliser Bay.

There are a range of activities to choose from that reveal the stunning surroundings and unique location.
