Four-wheel drive vehicles are intrinsic to our family farm life in the rugged High Country. Experience the safe yet gravity- defying nimbleness of our Green Jeeps, take in breath-taking panoramic views. You’ll be guided by a Tom, the fourth generation farmer, with his best mate ‘Tubs’, a working sheep dog who ‘speaks on command! Tom will share with the colourful gold mining history, unique High Country ecosphere and rugged schist landmarks, with true stories of farming the land since 1911 . It’s a ‘wee adventure” as we say in the South, that’s ideal for families or couples with a taste for high country adventure. ~ Amazing views and photo opportunities from 1,000m. ~ Learn about the gold-mining history & farming life. ~ Meet a working dog (it might even sit along side you). ~ Learn about the history of the area, the farm and the people. ~ Panoramic high country views of the Eyre Mountains and Nevis. ~ See if you can spot our native bird of prey, the New Zealand Peregrine falcon.
