Perched 750 feet above sea level along rugged coastline and surrounded by some of the country’s most spectacular scenery, venture to Boomrock and choose from an experience at either The Lodge or The Bunkers. 

The Lodge: for the golfing enthusiast. Try for a hole-in-one at the most extreme golf holes in the Southern Hemisphere, followed by shooting clay birds out over the Tasman Sea. 

The Bunkers: for the shooting enthusiast. Boasting world class shooting facilities, discover a range of targets with expert tuition before taking aim for a bullseye on the archery range. 

Both experiences finish up with a delicious Boomrock afternoon tea and a well-earned beer, all the while taking in spectacular views across to the South Island.
