An iconic local site

A working deer farm and popular film location site with huge panoramic mountain and lake views. There is a guaranteed WOW factor!

Stunning Location

Situated on the Kelvin Heights Peninsula this 800 hectare property is 20 minutes from Queenstown and ten minutes from the airport.

The Glamping sites are nestled amongst the tussocks, tarns and schist 5 km up the gravelled Deer Park Rd.  At check in quests are greeted at the locked farm gate and shown to their campsites.


Previously open to the public DPH became well known between locals and visitors as a popular self drive farm visit where guests could feed animals and enjoy the stunning views at their leisure.  It has been in the same family for 55 years and was one of the first deer farm's in NZ to breed deer in captivity. 


The property has been the location for a number of movies and numerous advertisements, most famously Peter Jackson’s  'Lord of the Rings’ trilogy, 'Wolverine' and Walt Disney movie’s 'The Rescue' and more recently 'Pete’s Dragon'.
