Omahau Hill Station

Omahau Hill station 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 (Bridget’s parents) 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.  SkyScape sits in the Northeast corner of the station, looking out across the Mackenzie Basin.

What our guests say…
“Magnificent!!! Truely beautiful by day and night. Sitting in the bath with a glass or red watching the night sky was delightful. A brilliant idea beautifully created.”
“I think this may be the best place in the world! I watched the stars from 3am until 6am. Never have I experienced anything like this. Words and pictures do not do this place any compliments.”
“Wow, What an experience! Such a magical place, from incredible sunrises, silhouetting mountains to star gazing at night. Words and pictures do not do it justice.”
