My home is nestled amongst native bush on Bealey Spur, not far from the National Park boundary and on SH73, and the section of the Te Araroa trail between the Mingha and Lagoon Saddle.

It overlooks the upper reaches of the Waimakariri River, with magnificent views of the main mountain ranges of Arthur’s Pass National Park. Bealey Spur is a small settlement of Kiwi holiday homes in the bush.

Bealey, Canterbury, New Zealand

Surrounding houses are weekenders or "baches", but usually there is no one else around - apart from the native birds!

Getting around

Arthur's Pass Village is 10mins by road. Best if you have your own vehicle. I can collect from the train station in Arthur's Pass.
