Long Beach Estate & Farm Tour

Enjoy a tour to one of Canterbury’s original sheep farming stations, founded in 1864 and was originally 30,000 acres in size. The Station was a self-supporting community with its own post office, school, general store, flour mill, brick works, church, smithy, bakery and cook house and employed a permanent staff of 200 farm hands. The station has stayed in the same family since 1864 but today is around 3,000 acres and farming practices consist of prime lamb production, wool, cereal crops, grass seed crops and a dairy farming unit. Longbeach Estate is famous for its farming history, historic buildings and stunning gardens consisting of sweeping lawns and gardens. Today the station holds many functions including weddings. You will get to enjoy meeting the owners of the property, enjoy a picnic style lunch and learning about the fascinating history, enjoy a guided tour of the gardens and historic buildings as well as enjoying a guided coach tour through the farm. En-route from Timaru to Longbeach you will get to enjoy views of the Canterbury plains which is the largest area of flat land in New Zealand.
