Property Highlights:+
Adventure

Matakauri Lodge offers a super range of exciting and thrilling adventures for adrenaline junkies. Try Canyoning, just minutes from the lodge, plunging into pools, cascading down chutes, abseiling down waterfalls and swimming narrow passageways as you embark on this unique aquatic adventure. If river rafting has your name written all over it, why not white-water raft on the Shotover or Kawarau rivers, through tunnels and Lord of the Rings locations while learning the rivers' gold mining history, or sway on the world's highest swing across a 70-metre-long suspension bridge as you freefall, creating an immense adrenaline rush.

Lakes & Mountains

Matakauri Lodge is spectacularly situated on the serene shores of Lake Wakatipu and boasts incredible mountain vistas, including of Cecil Peak. Discover the astonishing scenery further by exploring on foot through the best landscapes New Zealand has to offer. Embark on the Moke Lake Loop for a popular short and flat walk through grassland and around the beautiful lake - offering stunning views of the surrounding mountains reflecting on the lake's surface - or challenge yourself on a thrilling hike on the Mount Crichton Loop, as you climb through beech forest, enjoying great views over Lake Wataktipu and Lake Dispute, before coming across historic sites, gullys and waterfalls.

Family

Families of all sizes and ages are guaranteed endless fun at Matakauri Lodge. The lodge provides excellent little luxuries and amenities to make your stay as pleasant as possible, including babysitters, toys, games and much more. There is also an abundance of exciting family activities to try out, including the Funyak Safari, a full-day adventure taking you on a jet-boat ride to Mount Aspiring National Park, before funyaking downstream. Otherwise, gently cruise across Lake Wakatipu to the Walter Peak Station and enjoy a farm tour on the Earnslaw Cruises & Farm Tours. With many other activities to try, Matakauri Lodge will certainly create unforgettable memories.

Spa & Wellness

Matakauri's spa offers an holistic and tailor-made menu utilising New Zealand’s own Evolu Botanical skincare products; choose from temptingly named therapies, such as the Cocoon Bliss, Glacial Facial and the Ponamu Pebble Pedicure.

Yachting

An absolute must-do is the historic TSS Earnslaw; this majestic 1911 steamship still operates delightfully laid-back cruises across the waters of Lake Wakatipu and being so close to Matakauri Lodge, there's really no excuse not to jump aboard.

In Addition

Queenstown has very distinct seasons and is therefore stunning any time of the year, whether you seek snow, sun or springtime scents, Queenstown’s is undeniably beautiful and the crystal-clear air is intoxicatingly rich & these may seem like simple attributes, but they never fail to impress.
