Destination - Mid Canterbury, New Zealand

A Gem in the Foothills

A working sheep and beef operation, this 2,000 acre high country property offers more than just panoramic views of the foothills and mountains of Mid Canterbury. A mine on the property bears agate rock, a stunning stone renowned for its signature bands and translucent luster.

Delight in the beautiful gardens, lunch in the 100-year-old homestead or visit the old Tack Room, now used as a gallery to display jewellery utilising the farmed agate as well as pearls and other New Zealand stone.

This is a land where gems are found. This is Mid Canterbury.
