Our story

Omahau Hill is owned and operated by Michael and Elaine Lindsay and covers over 6000 acres of hill country and semi-flat land.  Located 12km northwest of Twizel, the station runs along the picturesque Ben Ohau mountain range.  Mike and Elaine took over the running of Omahau Hill in 1998. In the intervening years, Mike developed the farm from a basic hill block to a productive farm.  Grazing 1400 Merino sheep and 300 Suffolk Cross sheep, the station also runs 200 beef cattle. 

In 2014, Elaine and Mike’s daughter, Bridget and her husband Bevan returned home with the vision of creating a tourist accommodation business on the farm. After 12 years teaching in New Zealand and abroad, Bevan and Bridget wanted their two young boys, William and Dominic, to grow up in rural New Zealand. To realise this dream, the concept of the SkyScape was developed.
