GlenMac Farmstay, Waitaki Valley
If you want to experience life on a real working New Zealand farm, then GlenMac is a great place to stay between Dunedin and Mt Cook.
GlenMac is a 1583 hectare high country merino sheep and beef cattle farm in the stunning Waitaki Valley , which is just off State Highway 83, a direct link to Mt Cook and the nearby lakes.
There's heaps to do on the farm - why not start with tramping (hiking) and horse riding through rolling farmland and hill country, with breathtaking scenery as the backdrop.
Hosts Kaye and Keith Dennison are always keen to show you around - ask them about touring high and tussock country in their 4WD vehicle. You'll also be able to check out seasonal farm activities, Merino sheep, beef cattle and sheep dogs, along with panoramic views.
If you're keen on salmon and trout fishing, Kaye and Keith can organise a guide by arrangement, so no worries there. There's also a golf course within 10 minutes of GlenMac Farm.
Evenings can be spent relaxing in the family living room, watching TV, reading a magazine or playing cards. So whatever you're into, you're sure to find it at GlenMac Farm.
