4x4 Access

4x4 vehicles, quad bikes and motorbikes can use both the Orari River Track and Blue Mountain Conservation Area.

Orari River Track & DOC Track

Orari River Track

The Orari River Track is a stunning 4x4 private farm track that runs along the west side of the Orari River. A perfect opportunity to see a little of the high country. The track is 20km through native bush and traditionally farmed MacKenzie country back blocks. It is a great opportunity to cut out a huge section of the 79 Highway and explore some high country.

Blue Mountain Conservation Area Private Track

The conservation area on the top of Blue Mountain is 2,500ha of tussock country. Public access is via the Mowbray River that runs between Blue Mountain Station and Meikleburn Station (Walking Access Only). 

Blue Mountain Station has a private 4x4 track from our main homestead to the north boundary of the DOC block.  This track allows you to drive straight to the top rather then walk the almost 1700 metre climb from the Mowbray River.

The Conservation area is perfect for hunting, photography & tramping. On a clear day, a huge amount of the Canterbury Plains can be seen from the top, including Christchurch city and the Port Hills. 

Please Note - Motorbikes, Quad bikes and 4x4 vehicles are not permitted on our marked trails throughout the station. These trails are for walkers, bikers and horse riders only.
