Karetu Downs Farm Stay

Waipara, Christchurch, Canterbury


Karetu Downs is not just a farm it is a way of life. The 2000 hectare hill country property is home to around 4500 Romney sheep and 120 Angus cattle and has been owned and operated for over 3 generations by the Forrester family.
The Farm stay began in 2012 when we decided it was time to do something a little different. Visitors to Karetu would comment about how lucky we were to have such an idyllic place to live having been amazed at the breathtaking views from the top of the tussock clad hills to the fascinating perfectly round boulders along the river bed. These spherical stones or concretions can be found in varying sizes dotted along the river bed that runs through the farm.
We love watching the reaction of our guests when they bottle feed lambs, experience sheep shearing or marvel at the view from the top of the farm.
