Welcome Rock Trails – Garston Southland NZ……………..Secluded Accommodation, Hiking and Biking!

Located less than an hour south of Queenstown, Welcome Rock Trails is a private high-country station offering accommodation, hiking, mountain bike riding and amazing sightseeing. Our snowboarding season had just wound up down here in the Southern Hemisphere and we were looking for other adventures around this beautiful part of the world. Jen learnt about Welcome Rock Trails awhile back and we knew it was a place we wanted to visit.
