High Peak Station

High Peak Station

Station [n.] Australia, New Zealand. A large, often remote farm in Australia or New Zealand where buildings are stationed and historically, sheep and cattle are raised.

High Peak Station is the Guild family property upon which High Peak Game Estate is located. High Peak was established in 1856 in a wide valley at the head of the Selwyn River, near the geographic centre of New Zealand’s South Island. Comprising ten thousand acres, High Peak is home to two primary ventures – pastoral farming and guided trophy hunting.

The Art of Stalking.

High Peak’s hunting operation is born out of a dedicated passion for the art of stalking. For this reason, we have created the largest game estate in New Zealand with open-ranging trophy herds delivering a true fair-chase stalking experience.

By providing the animal with a real and practised opportunity to evade the hunter, the skill and ability of a true stalker can be beautifully illustrated. It is the stalk that our guests really value – many can provide a big trophy, but not many can deliver the hunt to match it.

Big Acres, Few Hunters.

By combining our awesome 4500-acre hunting environment with a low-volume approach to hosting our hunting guests, High Peak provides a unique experience. The lodge atmostphere comes courtesy of your own party and your dedicated hosts, while the hunting, where possible, is there for you and your party alone.

High Peak is one of those rare places where guests can enjoy big acres and exceptional trophy choice without having to deal with a passing parade of other hunters competing for the same opportunities.

Attributes that are based on Fact, not Superlatives.

Since 1973, High Peak has been owned and run continuously by James Guild and his family. We are a genuine family business that takes a personalised approach to hosting hunters, their family and friends. With freehold title, a private valley location and no public access through the property, High Peak can genuinely claim to be one of the most private hunting destinations anywhere in New Zealand.
