New Zealand destinations
Experience the unique beauty of rural New Zealand. Located only minutes northwest of Wellington – voted the Coolest Little Capital in the World, you’ll find Tussock Ridge Farm Tours, here you will enjoy an unforgettable 4WD journey across three privately-owned working farms in Ohariu Valley.
These farms stock over 6000 sheep, 400 cattle and 100 horses. It is also the site of Mill Creek Wind Farm - New Zealand’s newest wind farm with 26 turbines that power Wellington city.
Tours are guided by a local Ohariu Valley Farmer and owner of one of the 850 acre farms that you will be taken over. You are guaranteed to see a real slice of Kiwi farming by getting up close to some of the many thousands of sheep and helping to feed the beautiful wild Kaimanawa horses and wild eels.
A highlight of the tour is the journey out to the rugged west coast on the farm to our shepherd’s cabin, situated on the cliffs high above the Cook Strait. Here you’ll enjoy complimentary afternoon tea with one of the most spectacular views New Zealand has on offer.
