Glenfalloch is a working high country sheep and beef station, at the headwaters of the Rakaia River, tucked under the Southern Alps. It is also a boutique conference and accommodation centre for summer/winter activities, including heliskiing, fishing, hunting, four wheel drive safaris, mountain biking and walking.
The Tin House is a modern addition to the accommodation. It is self contained, with cooking facilities and a wood fire for cheery evenings. Other accommodation at Glenfalloch has been converted from original buildings, including shearing quarters, cook house and one of the station’s homesteads.
This is the Rakaia River, looking towards the Arrowsmith Range, taken from a vantage point at Glenfalloch. Winter heliskiers use the helipad at Glenfalloch as their starting point. The low grassy hill on the left is an ancient moraine called The Whaleback, where there are walking tracks.
