In addition to sheep and beef farming, the station today has a 200-hectare native bush sanctuary hosting introduced Kiwi and Tuatara with a predator proof fence running from coast to coast.  There is a luxury lodge with a privately-owned world class golf course.   Stop on top of the cliff tops and look down at the remarkable geology of the cliffs and sweeping views across Hawkes Bay.  When at the colony, you'll be mesmerised by the spectacular birds with their eye markings and golden crowns.  Be within just a few feet of adults and chicks nesting, preening themselves and performing their courtship dance.
