En Suite Lodge and Cottage Accommodation
A kilometre from Twizel Township, you’ll find the Omahau Downs Mackenzie country experience and a wide choice of accommodation. From the en-suite lodge to self-contained cabins and from the original farm cottage to a self-contained house. It has access to a number of activities, as well as unique fauna and views of Mount Cook.
Just imagine yourself lying in the Omahau Downs outdoor wood fire bathhouse with a glass of wine and uninterrupted views of Mt Cook! If you’re keen on fishing and exercise on the other hand, you can fish the Twizel River that runs through the property or go for farm walks.
We had a fantastic stay. Great hospitality, great company, great food and fantastic views. Lesley and Frank UK
Aoraki Mount Cook and Mount Cook National Park
Mt Cook has Australasia's highest mountain and the longest glacier in the Southern Hemisphere, the Tasman Glacier. Mount Cook National Park covers over 7,000 hectares of alpine scenery, preserved in its natural state for visitors to enjoy.
Mount Cook alpine village provides numerous activities, from scenic flights to leisurely hikes, glacier boat tours, first-class fly-fishing and 4WD adventures.
Mt Cook in all its glory at sunset - from the steaming hot outdoor bath, just perfect. Caroline and Peter, Australia.
Fishing and Flight Seeing
A 45min drive from Twizel, the Tekapo River, arguably the best Central South Island fishing river, supports a high number of trout and salmon. Tekapo, Twizel, and Glentanner Park all offer flight-seeing tours in a choice of helicopter or fixed wing plane.
We had a spectacular view of the mountains at sunset - amazing, lovely and comfy too. Joseph and Lois. USA
