Lumsden is a one hour scenic drive south from Queenstown Airport


Rod and Wheel House is located in the country town of Lumsden on the South Island of New Zealand. Lumsden is a short drive ( less than 1 hour) from two Airports- Queenstown and Invercargill. Both Airports have International and Domestic flights and vehicle hire services. The drive to Lumsden is scenic and fairly straightforward. In particular the drive from Queenstown Airport is especially picturesque as it travels along the edges of Lake Wakatipu before continuing through wide, green glacial plains spotted with sheep and deer, surrounded by towering mountains.The trip will cross the upper Mataura River which will give your first view of this 'gin clear' waterway. Its upper section shows regular pools, ripples and water flowing over colourful glacial pebbles. Nearer to Lumsden you will travel along the edges of the middle section of the Oreti River- showing its braided river bed, deep pools, shadowy undercuts and long ripples. The drive will show many aspects of the magnificent scenery that makes up this beautiful part of New Zealand.

Rod and Wheel House is located immediately next door to Oreti River House. Both houses have separate, private gardens and are surrounded by fences. They can be booked separately or together and can combine to accommodate up to 10 people.
