Company Description:

Over the last few million years glacial ice and rivers have diligently built the platform that is Terrace Downs. With a mighty force they carved the terraces that are the home of this unique High Country resort. The terrain they shaped is rugged but beautiful and boasts features nothing short of dramatic.

Mountains tower up to 2,000 metres above a verdant and gently undulating valley floor. The spectacular Rakaia River is one day a wild and awesome torrent, the next an azure blue ribbon meandering through the gorge. With a Scottish-like charm, rye grasses in autumnal hues of rust brown and red mix with riparian tussock over fields and fairways.

Copses of native trees, evergreens and shrubs decorate the landscape of Terrace Downs, as part of a major planting program to enhance the landscape. It is New Zealand at its pristine best, majestic mountains, braided rivers, a tapestry of plains and scenery so grand it can hardly fail to gladden the eye.

Terrace Downs was part of the Snowden property until 1946. The government then acquired it and in 1949 it became one of several farms that returned serviceman could apply for. Edwin Tilley was lucky enough to win the block of land in the ballot and he named it “Terrace Downs” after the terraces down to the Rakaia river. Edwin Tilley farmed sheep and cattle on the station until he retired in 1990 when the land was put up for auction where it was purchased from Japan by Shinnosuke Saito, a professional golfer.

The location was strategically chosen for rural tranquillity and magnificent scenery, its nearness to top tourist attractions and its proximity to Christchurch, the gateway to the South Island. Of special importance, it borders unspoilt High Country offering fantastic hunting, fishing, bush walks, eco retreats and unique native fauna.
