About Us

Off the Beaten Trail is located in Murchison, on the Southern side of the second largest National Park in New Zealand, the Kahurangi (meaning Treasured Possession). It has some of the country's oldest rock and landforms, spectacular areas of limestone and marble throughout.

There is great history in this area dating back to the early settlers and the gold rush times which can be seen still today. The waterways that pass through these rocks, landforms and wilderness make for a stunning place to come and explore, relax and enjoy.

Whether it be by foot, with extensive overnight or day walks throughout the area.

By mountain bike, from challenging single tracks to 4x4 tracks that explore the native bush and surrounding splendour at a pace that you choose.

By river, with a variety of graded rivers to raft, kayak, fish or jetboat down. The Upper Buller, Matakitaki, Mangles and Maruia rivers have crystal clear water for your enjoyment.

This area has something for everyone young and old. Whether it be adventure, history or relaxation, Off the Beaten Trail can accommodate you.
