The Station


Nokomai is a historic sheep and cattle station nestled in its own valley at the foot of the Garvie Mountains in Northern Southland. Its location is well described by the original name "Glenfalloch” given to it by its first settler, meaning “hidden valley".

During its 150 years, Nokomai has only had two owners, the family of the original Scottish settler, D.A. Cameron and the family of F.L. Hore who farm the station today.

Nokomai is one of the few original runs left intact in the area and has a wealth of history attached through farming and gold mining.

The Nokomai Valley Lodge gives you the opportunity to immerse yourself in station life. We offer our guests a unique holiday experience with a wide range of activities in a breathtakingly beautiful setting.

The Mataura River, known for its abundance in brown trout, winds its way through the property providing a popular destination for any fishing enthusiast.

We endeavour to give our guests a glimpse of the ‘real’ New Zealand and high country station life, something we hold very close to our hearts and look forward to sharing with you.

We welcome any enquiries and invite you to come and stay with us.
