With its easy access for large tour coaches, Middle Rock is an ideal venue for international visitors, farming delegations and families wishing to experience first hand, life on a high country sheep station. Tours take up to 3 hours and include viewing seasonal farming activities, sheep dog mustering, sheep handling and lamb feeding (in season). For farming groups a more specialised approach is taken according to the interests of the group. Morning or afternoon teas served in the homestead kitchen are also included. Lunches can also be provided.

A visit to Middle Rock offers the opportunity to be guests of a New Zealand farming family in a non-commercial environment amidst the stunning high country scenery of the Lake Coleridge area. Each tour day is different depending on what is happening on the farm. There are no minimum numbers, each group has exclusive access and  we are open all year by appointment.

Independent travellers:
Lately the demand from the prebooked group tour market has meant we have had to decline a number of small group and family visits. If you wish to visit Middle Rock please give us as much advance notice as you can. We’ll do our best to schedule a visit for you.
