Wanaka, New Zealand
Give something back during your holiday. The team at Mahu Whenua are regenerating the land through sustainable farming practices, replanting extensive areas with native bush, and breeding native birds.
Mahu Whenua consists of four high country sheep stations owned by record producer Robert ‘Mutt’ Lange. The stations stretch from Wanaka through to Queenstown over 55,000 hectares of towering mountains, lush green valleys, native bush, forests and meandering rivers.
The accommodation is comprised of five king suites, one with an adjoining bunk room catering for two children. Homestead facilities include two open fireplaces, a large open living area with expansive views, a fully equipped farmhouse kitchen, two dining areas and a library. Outside, there are several spots to unwind including two dining areas, a spa pool (hot tub), a sheltered swimming pool and a large decking area to make the most of the incredible views and location.
More than 90% of the land has been protected by the Queen Elizabeth II National Trust, making it the largest conservation undertaking on private land in New Zealand's history. The name Mahu Whenua aptly translates to “healing the land”.
many many many thanks!!!!!!
We have been blown away by everything - hotels, food, people, golf, wine - the list is endless. You did an amazing job
Planning a 7 week trip is daunting enough without the complications of COVID cancellations, rebookings, and closures. Yet every connection, every transportation detail, every accommodation, every meal, everything was flawless.
From our arrival in Sydney .. to our last stop in Queenstown .. we will carry with us the best memories of our trip and all of your efforts. The incredible private boat tours .. the bespoke wine tours with the best guides .. our accommodations .. and the excellent itinerary and pacing, made for a perfect trip.
We can't thank Southern Crossings enough for making this trip all, and more, than we had imagined. You allowed us to see the best of your countries: the people, the beauty, the culture. Five stars, a blue ribbon, and a gold medal to everyone at Southern Crossings!
Your country, its people and your team could not have made us feel more welcome.
Thank you for all the special moments you enabled us to experience.
