Molesworth Station

January 11, 2018

The Department of Conservation (DOC) is open to a radical rethink of the historic Molesworth Station, the rolling high-country farm linking Marlborough to North Canterbury. The farming lease at the 180,000-hectare cattle ranch - about the size of Stewart Island - expires in 2020, and the public could help shape its future. DOC community ranger Chris Wootton said a new online survey would collect and gauge public opinion, although calls for sealed roads, tour buses and airstrips weren't likely to fly. The survey closes on March 31. For further information and to take part in the survey visit https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/Molesworthconsultation
