Your home away from home in Southland.


Our location.

The district Kaiwera is named after the freshwater water food abundantly gathered by the early Maori and where anglers of all experience can fish in the many rivers and streams in the area. The wider district Pukerau is aptly named after the many hills which dominate the landscape and gives unique beauty to the area. Only an hour drive from the picturesque Catlin coast and Invercargill and 2 hour drive to both Te Anau and Queenstown.

Nithdale Farmstay is part of the modern homestead recently built on Nithdale Station - a large property with a history of farming dating back to 1856. Today, Nithdale Station has a successful, award winning sheep & beef operation with a Romney and Suffolk Stud, both of national and international standing as well as a large dairy unit. Nithdale Farmstay contains a fully self contained unit with kitchen, bathroom, two double rooms (one room can service as two single beds). Bed and breakfast standard with evening meals available with prior arrangement. Farm tours are also available with prior arrangement.
