Shearers Quarters

Authentic accommodation in the backcountry.

Mount Cook Station Shearers Quarters is rustic early 1900s accommodation which has views of Lake Pukaki, the Jollie and Tasman River flats and the Southern Alps. It is situated on the northern side of the Jollie river over by the main homestead.

 

It was built originally for the shearers when they came on to the station to shear the sheep. It has recently been extensively renovated with a new kitchen and bathrooms and a two-bedroom extension.

 

Nearby, Bill's Hut is a little stroll from the shearers quarters and acts as the 5th bedroom. Bill's Hut is named after Bill Seymour, who, during the early 1900s was a long time shepherd/manager on Mt Cook Station. This is where he slept after his long days mustering.

The Shearers Quarters and Bill's Hut can be rented as 1,2,3,4 or 5 bedrooms with shared facilities.
