We offer two transport options for our Farm 4WD Experience. Our very capable luxury 4WD or Yamaha Viking Recreational Off Road vehicles for those up for a bit of adventure.
Ben Lomond Station is a 13,500 hectare Merino sheep station beautifully kept with grazing lands, native Beech forest, lakes, rivers, mining huts and tracks from the gold mining era. It is owned by John Foster who has specialised in the farming and production of the finest merino wool for many years.
We will pick you up from your accommodation at your preferred time. From Queenstown centre, a 9.5km road takes us to Moke Lake. This marks the beginning of Ben Lomond Station and the private access only road. Your vehicle of choice will take you through the river route with it’s gold mining history and the mountain pass overlooking the rugged land sculpted by gold mining and sheep farming. Above the treeline, panoramic views open up in alpine style. Several river crossings later at Moonlight Lodge we will catch up with John Foster himself. He will formally introduce us to his sheep and give us an insight into the art of shearing and many great yarns of the early settlers and the mining history that made this land rich. Enjoy a gourmet lunch at Moonlight Lodge to keep fueled for the afternoon. Where we can embark on nature walks following the water races in beautiful old beech forest, try some lake fishing, gold mining, tackle some farming or relax and enjoy beautiful surroundings.
