Own Your Own Island

There are few prospects to purchase an island in the Southern Lakes region, but Dart River Island represents just that one-off exclusive opportunity. The only island complete with a freehold title to be marketed in the Wakatipu, Dart River Island is steeped in history and owned by the same local family since the early 1900s.

In its key location on the Dart River, remote from settlement but close to the Dart River bridge, and just 15 minutes by sealed road from the head of the small lake settlement of Glenorchy, the island is easily accessible by 4WD vehicle.
The 50 acre property (more or less) is nestled on the banks of the Dart River and has spectacular uninterrupted views of the Dart River Valley, the Southern Alps and the rugged Humboldt Mountains.

Established beech, kowhai, walnut and fruit trees planted by the early owners, creates a stunning setting where the homestead once was. An abundance of native birds including Tui and Kereru live on the island offering a feeling of tranquillity.

Rarely does a property of this standing come on the market. Close to Paradise Valley and to Mount Aspiring National Park which showcases New Zealand's most famous walking tracks such as the Routeburn, Greenstone and Caples, and Rees and Dart tracks.

This is a one off opportunity to purchase a slice of Wakatipu paradise and own your own personal island wilderness.
