Prepare for an adventure that not only showcases the amazing scenery of New Zealand but also scratches beneath the surface, uncovering its rich historic exploits and putting you more in touch with New Zealand history.

Jump into our comfortable 4WD all-terrain vehicle and prepare for an adventure in comfort!

Discover the infamous “gold trail”, an area rich in history with lovingly preserved mining relics and artefacts which can be spotted around this rugged region. You will also enjoy a scenic drive in the Kawarau Gorge where you will see the Kawarau river, the main source of the gold mining industry in the 19th Century.

Enjoy a bit of adrenaline as we go off road and climb some 4WD farm tracks in a 100-year-old New Zealand working farm station. Once we reach the highest peak, you will be greeted with stunning views of the beautiful plateau overlooking Lake Dunstan. You’ll discover farming in the earlier days of New Zealand farming as you listen to interactive stories of the early settlers and hard life in the past.

We’ll take another scenic drive through the wine region of Central Otago and take a visit to Old Cromwell town. Jump out and take a walk here as the themed GPS headsets bring this quirky town back to life and give you an overview of life in this area.

There will be so many amazing photo opportunities on this expedition so make sure your camera is packed! The delicious “musterers” morning tea of scones with cream and coffee completes the experience making for the perfect day out!
