FARM ACTIVITIES

Just as the tide ebbs and flows, the seasons and colours of the 4,000-acre Annandale farm change throughout the year, from luscious greens in spring to tussocky golds by autumn. Guests are encouraged to explore and be as hands-on as they like. Take a guided 4WD tour across the farm, watch sheep dogs at work or enjoy the atmosphere of the shearing shed, and if you’re lucky see the skilled shearers in action.

HIKING AND BIKING

With such amazing scenery around, walking and biking are hugely popular in New Zealand. There are several spectacular tracks on the Annandale property itself, varying in length and terrain, including the 14km Pigeon Bay Walkway. On arrival, guests will receive a map of the farm, detailing trails and interesting features. Complimentary bikes are available to use on these trails and a picnic can be arranged for along the way. Beyond the Annandale farm, the greater Banks Peninsula is renowned for its hiking trails, with expeditions ranging from 10 minutes to several hours.

COOKING CLASSES

Spend some of your time at Annandale improving your kitchen skills or finding out more about New Zealand cuisine, take advantage of a cooking class with the on-site chef. Without even having to leave the property, you can specify what you’d like to learn about and spend a wonderful day transforming fresh produce into delicious dishes with the help of a professional. Alternatively, for an off-site experience, nearby Akaroa has its own cooking school, offering popular themed courses during which a guest chef inspires his or her students with fresh, local ingredients and expert techniques.

SCENIC TOURS

There are lots of ways to discover Annandale and the surrounding region, and plenty of friendly local guides ready to ensure you get the highlights, no matter how short your stay. Take to the skies in a helicopter for a bird’s eye perspective of the dramatic landscape or let a local fishing expert take you out in a boat or to one of the nearby rivers.

WATER ACTIVITIES

The sheltered, turquoise waters of Pigeon Bay and the surrounding area along Annandale’s coast is the playground to much wildlife, including the friendly Hector’s dolphins, fur seals, blue penguins and bird colonies. Why not explore these waters led by local trained guides in kayaks or on Annandale’s powerboat.

ACTIVITIES IN AKAROA

Only a 30-minute drive from the Annandale homestead is the French-influenced town of Akaroa. Nestled in the centre of an ancient and extinct volcano, which is now an enormous and picturesque bay, its streets are lined with cafes, bistros, and quirky shops. Fishing and diving charters, Dolphin-watching and dolphin-swimming tours, penguin viewing tours, water-skiiing, sea-kayaking and jet-boating are just some of your options that leave from Akaroa.
