The large homestead garden at Middle Rock has for many years hosted domestic and international tour groups. Featuring stone walls, a pond and a collection of hardy plants and trees, the garden is framed by panoramic views of the Mt Hutt mountain range.

Groups with limited time frames, or local community groups wanting a shorter day, often choose to make Middle Rock a lunch destination. For these groups a variety of options are available including a short 30 minute farm tour by coach.

The High Country Tour (Coach groups only)

A day of farms, gardens, history, heritage and traditional rural hospitality in the Lake Coleridge high country.

This popular day tour for coach groups, visits up to three properties, all with their particular points of interest. Visitors are welcomed into the various homesteads and have the opportunity to meet with the owners and their families. All properties are surrounded by spacious gardens and at Middle Rock a short 30 minute farm tour is included. Availability of properties varies from time to time but The Point Station, at Windwhistle, and Middle Rock are included in most tours.

The High Country Tour begins one hour’s drive from Christchurch and  is open to groups all year around, by appointment.  The tour has been a popular choice for New Zealand wide travel groups, conference guests and international visitors since 1990.
