Mossburn Country Park

 Peaceful and spacious, Mossburn Country Park is set in 28 acres surrounded by mountains and rivers. For those who love to view the night sky, there's no need to worry about town light pollution to drown out the natural wonder of the Aurora Australis and the spectacular milky way.

Enjoy a relaxed farm setting complete with hand-reared farm animals for all to enjoy. 3km from Mossburn on SH 97, this is the perfect stop over point approximately half way between Queenstown and Te Anau. Close to fishing rivers, hunting, tramping, new cycle trail and Fiordland.
With multiple rivers close by, including the Oreti River just 2km away, it's a great base for fishing.
