Off Road 4WD Safari - West Wanaka Station

27 December 2017

Come with us to explore the scenic beauty of West Wanaka Station, an iconic 30,000 acre high-country
farm, that boundaries the Mt Aspiring National Park, the Matukituki River and the shores of Lake Wanaka.

The farm has been in the Cochrane family for more than 100 years and has an ideal balance of river flat and high country. The farm currently supports 13,500 sheep, 1,350 cattle and 2,220 deer.

On this trip, we will assemble at 1.30 pm on the grassy area immediately on the West Wanaka side of the
Matukituki River bridge. We will lead you along the flat, and then rise into the high-country via a mountain
pass, climbing to 1000m, witnessing spectacular vistas and animals in their natural environment. The journey will take a total of 3 hours and the Wanaka and Districts Lions Club will put on a BBQ at the end of the day.

Registration is essential and numbers are strictly limited. Don’t worry if you don’t have a 4WD vehicle,
we will find one for you to travel in.

The cost of the safari is $50 for adults and $25 for children under 15 years (children under 5 are free). All
funds raised will be used to support Wanaka Search and Rescue. Thank you to James and Jonelle Cochrane for their support, both for Wanaka and District Lions and Wanaka Search and Rescue.
