Staying in huts on the Station, we can cater for groups of 2–6. There will be a range of options available.

Weekends will begin with gun safety training. We also offer clay target shooting tuition, rifle target shooting, trap management, wallaby shooting, night shooting, feeding pheasants, stalking and preparing game from the field to the kitchen.

There would also be the possibility of visiting Maori rock art on Craigmore, taking a tour of the farm on 4-wheel drive motorbikes, and seeing various farm and domestic animals.

You can bring your own food or hampers of food can be provided filled with seasonal produce, home baking and breakfast.

Ladies' shooting at Craigmore

Ladies Day

Depending on the group there could be clay shooting, gun safety training, driven pheasants or rough shooting with lunch at the homestead and there is also an opportunity  to learn how to prepare and cook game.

High Country Game
There is a possibility of shooting wallabies at Babers Block and we can arrange for guided deer shooting (fallow and red deer) in the Hunter Hills, thar shooting in the high alps, or fishing in the MacKensie country.

Clay Bird Shooting
Recommended for getting your eye in before duck shooting or a pheasant shoot.
A great idea for corporate entertaining, for pre-Xmas entertainment, for a friends/family re-union or for a ladies’ day out.
