“The authentic high country experience”Set amongst towering snow topped mountains with the pristine glacial waters of lake Heron at her feet, the iconic Mt Arrowsmith Station invites you to come and enjoy her unspoilt natural beauty. With accommodation and activity options to suit all walks of life, Arrowsmith is the destination for those looking for an authentic high country experience.


From back country huts to relaxing in the comfort of Arrowsmith Lodge taking in the spectacular scenery over Lake Heron to the rugged snowcapped mountains beyond. We have the Wool shed for larger groups and the ever popular Lake Heron Campground for those who like to pull out their tents and sleeping bags during the trout fishing season.


Mt Arrowsmith is a 9000 ha working high country station farming merino sheep, Angus cattle and red deer. Steeped in history Arrowsmith was originally called Lower Lake Station and was first settled in 1858 by hardy Ashburton Gorge pioneers. Now 155 years and a new name later Mt Arrowsmith Station continues the tradition of iconic back country farming.


Get away from it all at Arrowsmith and sample the best the high country has to offer; fishing, hiking, kayaking, bird watching, hunting, tramping, mountain biking or just breathing in fresh air amongst a stunning mountain environment. We welcome people who wish to bring their own horses to the property for trekking (there are yards and a paddock available for your equine friends).
