Makarora River Ranch includes self-contained lodge-style accommodation equipped for a relaxing self-catering holiday with cooking facilities, a BBQ on reques, ample car parking and landscaped for privacy. Makarora has two cafes which between them provide breakfast, lunch and evening meals. They also have bar and fuel facilities available. Both are within only a few minutes drive from the ranch.
The closest supermarket is located in Wanaka, so we do recommend you stock up on whatever you may need for your stay before coming to Makarora.
Our accommodation can be booked separately or book all three to enjoy exclusive use of Makarora River Ranch. Please contact us for group rates and availability.
The lodge, originally built as accommodation for travelling sheep shearing crews in the early 1900s, is now fully modernised and offers luxurious accommodation for travellers. This spacious lodge is ideal for families and groups. Relax in comfortable and homely surroundings after a day's fishing or hunting or simply relax and soak up the view.
