Waterwheel Farm & Ahaura Lodge

West Coast, South Island, New Zealand

We are a working farm, located in a private valley, on the West Coast of the South Island. As we are surrounded by beautiful native forest, a variety of wildlife is on offer. There are deer, goats, pigs and small game to be had. After a good day out hunting, feel free to relax at Ahaura Lodge.

The eco-lodge is situated in a peaceful area, with native bird song all year round. We built a 5 metre water wheel, near to the house, which supplies off the grid electricity. Enjoy the soothing sound of the wheel moving the water to a man-made pond. The eco-lodge is surrounded by DOC land, with easy to access walking tracks, and the valley is full of remnants of the late 1800's gold rush. We also have access from Ahaura to Napoleon Hill 4x4 Track and the Waipuna Tunnels.
