The ownership of this iconic Queenstown high country property is staying with New Zealanders.

It was bought by Queenstown Farm Ltd, a company associated with the Porter brothers, developers of Queenstown's Remarkables Park and Shotover Park and the company behind a proposed convention centre in Frankton.

The station has 14km of river frontage with the Kawarau River and rises up the northern slopes of The Remarkables Range to the Remarkables skifield.
