Macetown Scenic Tour

Our historic Macetown 4×4 scenic tour is specially designed for guests that want a true New Zealand Back Country Experience.

Narrow, single lane pathways, waterfalls, high bluffs with sheer drops and 25 river crossings make the journey to Macetown a thrilling once in a lifetime 4×4 adventure.

This area is steeped in history, dating back to the 1860’s when gold miners set up here. Try your luck panning for gold in the Arrow River, which still holds small nuggets of alluvial gold.

Come away with amazing photos and lasting memories from this unforgettable experience.
