In 1964 the original Mt Potts homestead, shearer’s quarters and wool shed were converted into an accommodation and restaurant complex, known as Mt Potts Lodge today.
We have a variety of accommodation on offer a long with our restaurant and bar.
Since purchasing the station in 2011, we have been making steady improvements to its infrastructure and accommodation facilities and we continue to do so in the future, It’s a big job and we are taking it seriously. We cater for groups, parties and special events if you would like to know more, check out the events section of our website.

Mt Potts is a 1197ha (2956 acres) working farm with 85ha under irrigation. We are currently running 425 cows with 390 calves at foot, as well as bulls, goats, deer and stags, with a total of 3918 stock units (we hope to put another 200 hinds on and 800 ewes in the near future, bringing the total to 5200).
We are looking to develop and offer farm experience days for those wishing to get their hands dirty and get involved with the farm for a day. Please stay tuned as we will be uploading more information on this shortly.
We operate Helipark from Mt Potts during the winter season. Helipark is heli-accessed free riding in 660Ha of incredible backcountry terrain. You pick your own lines, you decide how many runs. We do safety and lunch. HeliPark is an environment for free-skiers and riders to play in powder, and for photographers and teams to get the shots they need. It’s another world first for NZ.
